National Lottery Heritage Fund: Digitisation Leadership Event
This half-day event will focus on digitisation in relation to the UK’s economy, the cultural sector, and international standing.
Executive Director of the Flickr Foundation, George Oates, will be on a panel with colleagues from the British Film Institute, the Natural History Museum, and the National Archives to present and discuss priorities for UK government around digitisation in the cultural and heritage sectors.
“Digitisation is not a singular process, but a set of stages, which in turn are often part of a wider programme. At its core, digitisation is a combination of releasing digital data about collections and creating digital representations of analogue or physical objects.”
– Josie Fraser, Head of Digital Policy, National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The event is part of a larger program to build digital skills and influence policy in the UK. Find out more on the Heritage Fund website.
