Intro

Ulysseus European University is launching a brand new series of webinars on key regional and local challenges.

These are part of the calendar of activities of “COMPASS: Leading Ulysseus to become a European University excellence model through Research and Innovation”, a Horizon 2020 project of Ulysseus and the flagship for its R&I agenda and strategy.

Organised by Ulysseus Innovation Hubs, these webinars will bring together experts from academia, industry and NGO’s, among other organisations to discuss key regional and local challenges.

 

About this webinar

The achievement of full accessibility and inclusiveness within heritage is essential for achieving the UN Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Nevertheless, the enormous potential is still underestimated on a practical level, and high impact applications are yet to develop. What does it mean then being highly inclusive and promoting accessibility in an urban context? Is it different from a natural environment? And what is the role of the cultural heritage in this framework? 

The boost of digitalisation and technological solutions are the ultimate responses to an increasing demand for both audience development and activities of monitoring. Then, what are the more feasible options, and which are the side effects of this development? 

The webinar will address these topics reflecting on the different meanings of ‘accessibility’ and ‘inclusiveness’ in different contexts, opening a dialogue on their challenges and opportunities.
