Space for Cultural Heritage

The European Space Agency’s Downstream Gateway is organising a one-day Digital Workshop “Space for Cultural Heritage” on 24 February at 9.00-16.00 CET (on WebeX platform).

Several factors, both natural and anthropic ones, endanger nowadays our cultural heritage: subsidence, ground motion, pollution, looting, collateral damages and intentional attacks. Data provided by the European Space Agency Copernicus fleet of satellites and other cutting edge technologies leveraging on artificial intelligence and machine learning can help better assessing the risk and preserving sites at risk.

The workshop foresees the participation of actors both from the Cultural Heritage and the Space Sector in order to present opportunities and challenges in the use of space technologies and derived data for the protection, valorisation, and fruition of cultural assets.

Participation to the webinar is free upon registration.
