Hosted by the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Belgrade and Historical Archives of Belgrade, this year´s second ICARUS Convention tackled all topics related to digital platforms and digital research of archival sources, challenges of archives in the digital societies, international cooperation networks and initiatives creating new ways to use digital sources and bring history closer to the public.
This convention was an excellent opportunity to invite a large audience to join us in unlocking the treasures kept in archives!
Our colleagues from the General Sub-directorate of the Spanish State Archives in the Ministry of Culture and Sports and the National Archives of Hungary took the stage to share what´s new and next in our project.
EBNA meetings are organised twice a year in the country that holds the presidency of the Council of the EU. On the agenda are issues of strategic importance in the field of archives, such as digitisation and digitalisation, storage of electronic documents, document theft, disaster preparedness and standards. The European Archives Group (EAG) as an official Commission expert group that ensures cooperation and coordination on matters relating to archives often meets on the occasion of EBNA meetings.
This time our project partner the National Archives of Finland hosts the joint EAG/EBNA meeting as they are also holding the Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
We are happy that we get to share our project with the audience!
