This deliverable aims to describe inDICEs’ targeted methodologies of research and analysis, briefly describing the Methodological Toolbox as the set of targeted methodologies defined through an in-depth review of the current state of the art approaches, both in relation to the research questions and to the kind of available and acquired data and their structure. These are the main components of the Methodological Toolbox: 1) inDICEs Theoretical Framework, 2) Targeted strategies of data gathering and data analysis, 3) Available datasets, 4) Set of useful indicators.
This Deliverable aims to briefly describe the data collection processes, the datasets gathered and the preliminary data analysis on users’ behavioural changes that were carried out by the WP1 working group. The inDICEs data collection processed and/or stored within the first 12 months of the project consists of:
a) data analyzed as part of the inDICEs participatory platform, where results are made available through the Open Observatory
b) data of relevance provided by third-parties
c) online content gathered continuously, made accessible by means of the Visual Analytics Dashboard that covers: Online news and web sources, Twitter posts, Youtube videos and Facebook pages
d) FBK collected on-line datasets on cultural production, from the following sources: Wikipedia, Tiktok, Deviantart, AllTheater
This deliverable describes the activities carried out during the first six months of the inDICEs project within Work Package 2 (WP2) by the different partners and summarizes the results achieved by this work package.
The document provides a detailed overview of the current and upcoming IP legal framework affecting the activities of the CHIs. It will raise awareness of the legal constraints and opportunities that result from the IP framework applicable at the EU level. Increasing their knowledge of IP laws will help CHIs to develop innovative business models and to overcome bottlenecks in the use and re-use of creative content under their collections.
In addition, this study will also describe other non-IP related rules that may have an impact on digitization and use and re-use of cultural content under the collections of CHIs and on access and promotion of culture and knowledge.
It is essential to ensure that CHIs are fully aware of the impact that intellectual property (hereinafter ‘IP’) rules, and in particular of copyright legislation, make on their core activities, such as with respect to access, use and re-use of cultural content.
The first WP2 deliverable (Deliverable 2.1) of this project aimed at mapping the relevant IP rights (IPRs) at EU and international level. This deliverable, titled ‘Legal comparative analysis for a multi-level relationship involving CHIs’ focuses on comparative analysis of the relevant copyright-related provisions that impact the activities carried out by CHIs. The legislative framework of six selected Member States (Belgium, France, Lithuania, Poland, Spain and Sweden) is compared in this study. The jurisdictions were selected based on the agreement made with a partner H2020 project, reCreating Europe, where other EU national jurisdictions will be analysed.
The task Policy analysis of value chains for CHIs in the Digital Single Market (T 3.1) was focused on the analysis of the value chains for CHIs in the DSM to foster the understanding of current business models of interaction between CHIs and creative industries and how such models can reinforce access to culture and European identity. Within the inDICEs project, we aim to understand the effects of the digital revolution on modes of cultural and creative production and on their economic and social impact. To achieve this, we decided to look at the CH sector in the context of the structural inter-dependencies and the impact it has on other sectors and societies. Taking into consideration the changing perception of the role and responsibilities of cultural heritage institutions, as well as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, in the following document we discuss the issue of the value of digital cultural heritage, focusing on the impact it has on societies and the European policies concerning digital heritage resources and the Digital Single Market and proposes a framework for understanding digital cultural heritage value chains, created on the basis of case studies analysis of the (re)use of digital cultural heritage.
This document presents digital transformation guidelines for cultural heritage institutions (CHIs). They situate digital transformation in the context of opening up GLAM collections, inspired by the work at Europeana Foundation, the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum and the Europeana Network Association. They are based on an in-depth review of the state-of-the-art in self-assessment instruments for heritage institutions, of which the inDICEs self-assessment tool is a further evolution,
taken on board insights and lessons learned from the COVID-19 crisis.
The objective of this deliverable is to describe the research process and the resulting user scenarios that will be utilized as tools in the design and development of the inDICEs Open Observatory Platform. These processes have so far ranged in activities and research methodologies that allow for stakeholders to identify user needs and functional requirements that have then been translated into technical specifications, wireframes, and design schemes in terms of data architecture. This deliverable draws from the activities carried out during the first 10 months of the inDICEs project within Work Package 4 (WP4) by all consortium partners and describes the results achieved by this work package.
The deliverable also includes a set of wireframes and prototypes providing a preliminary illustration of the different functionalities of the platform. These have been presented and discussed with the project partners, who represent the platform’s end users, and incorporate the initial feedback received by them.
This deliverable describes the activities carried out during the first year of the inDICEs project within Work Package 4 (WP4) and Work Package 5 (WP5) by the different partners and describes the results achieved by these work packages.
This deliverable outlines the work explicitly in connection to creating a sustainable participatory platform. Sustainable in this deliverable refers to the facet of management, community engagement, as well as user experience. Since the inception of the project, the end goal has been to create a digital space for cultural heritage institutions, organizations, and actors around Europe where they can connect, share information, and collaborate together using a host of tools, resources, and data generated by the consortium partners.
