Time machine FET Flagship: E-RIHS and DARIAH ERIC signed their support to the proposal


In December 15, 2017 50 representatives of Member States and the main European research and technology organisations will meet in Brussels. On this occasion the topics will be the first selection of the new FET Flagships. That are the major European programmes eligible for funding up to a billion euros. E-RIHS and DARIAH ERIC signed an official joint letter to support their high interest in the TIME Machine proposal, http://timemachineproject.eu. The Time Machine Project aims at building a Large Scale Simulator to map 2000 years of European History. The result will be to transform kilometers of archives and large collections from museums into a digital information system.  Moreover, the Time Machine digital technologies will contribute to making this heritage accessible and open to the world. In particular, they will develop new paradigms for the use and re-use of big data related to Cultural Heritage.

For all those reasons, DARIAH ERIC and E-RIHS supported the Time Machine Project. They fully believe that technological advances joined with the unique digital content of this project will boost the building of a knowledge content digital single market. Thus, they will stimulate new business for the cultural and creative industries across Europe and the world.
