MEMEX H2020 project kick-off

Prof. Valentina Nisi, Prof. Nuno Nunes, and the researcher Vanessa Cesário have attended the kick-off meetings of the H2020 MEMEX project, on January 9-10, at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, in Genova, Italy, a project for promoting social cohesion and cultural diversity.

This was a two-day event that comprised a general project introduction, presentations related to its management, objectives, and implementation actions.

MEMEX – MEMories and EXperiences for inclusive digital storytelling is an H2020 funded project of ARDITI, with a global budget amount of about 4M€.

On the second day, in one of the working groups’ meetings, in which the ITI members participated, discussed one of the main aspects of the project, the three pilot sites that will be implemented in Paris, Barcelona, and Lisbon to identify and demonstrate the cultural, social and economic impact of technology. In another working group meeting, the better digital solutions for the sake of producing the initial version of a mobile app implemented in pilot sites were considered: geolocalization, data, system requirements, and others.
