eCult 2nd Dialogue Day - Tallinn, Estonia
"You, all innovators, can transform the world with culture!" Jill Cousins, EUROPEANA
The second eCult Dialogue Day took place in Tallinn, in collaboration with the EMYA - European Museum of the Year Award event. More than 100 participants showed their interest in the presentations and the opportunity to find technology solutions for their (museum) needs. Representatives from museums, technology providers, EU projects,and the public sector were brought together to see best practice examples, new developments and use case scenarios, and to discuss potential future collaboration.
QUOTES FROM THE MORNING PANEL:
Margaretha Mazura (EMF): We need to create innovation – as a new way of thinking and communicating
Hanna Pennock (ICOM president): For Museums, objects are out of the economic circuit – but we need to protect our property
Philippe Wacker (EMF): There is no fixed value to an asset, no matter if digital or not digital
Wim de Vos (EMYA judging panel and advisor to the Belgian Federal Science Policy): There were many millions invested into digitisation – but what now? This is a question for the dialogue!

The eCult Observatory is a brokerage platform for cultural heritage institutions and technology providers. It allows heritage institutions to submit their technology needs and providers to propose their solutions. It provides a knowledge environment for all cultural heritage stakeholders (museums and content holders, ICT solution providers, cultural mediators, artists and visitors). It is the result of the eCultValue project, co-funded by FP7 of the EC.
