The project is supported by the European Union's Erasmus+ program. The primary objectives of Data4UA project are to assess the [...]
Επίσημη έναρξη του έργου Data4UA για την ενίσχυση της Διαχείρισης της Πολιτιστικής Κληρονομιάς στην Ουκρανία
Επίσημη έναρξη του έργου Data4UA για την ενίσχυση της Διαχείρισης της Πολιτιστικής Κληρονομιάς στην Ουκρανία Την 1η Νοεμβρίου 2023 ξεκίνησε επίσημα το έργο Data4UA που εστιάζει στα δεδομένα με στόχο την ενίσχυση των πρωτοβουλιών διαχείρισης της πολιτιστικής κληρονομιάς στην Ουκρανία. Το έργο, συνολικής διάρκειας 18 μηνών (Νοέμβριος 2023- Απρίλιος 2025), υλοποιείται από μια δυναμική κοινοπραξία εταίρων, μεταξύ των οποίων: το Ινστιτούτο Λογοτεχνίας, Λαογραφίας και Τέχνης του Πανεπιστημίου της Λετονίας σε ρόλο συντονιστή (Λετονία), το Εθνικό Πολυτεχνείο του Lviv (Ουκρανία), την εταιρεία Space4CC (Ελλάδα/Νορβηγία) και το Πανεπιστήμιο της Λιουμπλιάνας (Σλοβενία).

Together with a team from National Observatory of Athens, Web2Learn and developers from Baltic countries, Space4CC participated in the NASA space apps challenge in Dnipro, Ukraine 7- 8 October 2023. NASA has several Earth observation products such as land cover and air quality that will enrich the Space4CC solution. Great progress was made in this world's largest hackathon with more than 57000 participants worldwide.
The Europeana digital cultural heritage working group aims to establish and facilitate actions that apply the Europeana Initiative’s collective capacity and capability to support the preservation and development of the Ukrainian digital cultural heritage sector. It is a joint Task Force from the Europeana Foundation, Europeana Network Association and Europeana Aggregators’ Forum. Space4CC contributed with a presentation and discussion on the use of Earth observations, space data, and citizens generated data in the online meeting of the Europeana digital cultural heritage of Ukraine working group in September 2023.
In response to the war in Ukraine, the Data4UA project is designed to support and enhance cultural heritage (CH) data management, emphasizing on CH education and training systems in European HEIs. In particular, war and armed conflicts pose serious threats to cultural heritage worldwide, while digital technologies have a significant role to play in safeguarding cultural heritage (UNESCO, n.d. Cutting Edge | Protecting and preserving cultural diversity in the digital era). Hence, Data4UA targets European HE staff and students aiming to expand their skills by focusing on citizen digital CH data generation and training on digital management. To do that, [...]
Hatathon 4.0: Ukraine Heritage Edition is in response to the challenges of the war and ignites an innovative spirit to preserve Ukrainian culture. We considered our Space4CC solution to be a good match for these challenges and teamed up with the National Observatory of Athens to participate. With around 1300 participants forming more than 100 teams, we were proud that our team came in as number 12.
Space4CC and our collaborators at National Observatory of Athens are joining forces again to particpate in the Hatathon 2023. What on Earth is an hatathon? Hatathon is a wordplay, using the word hata which means house in Ukrainian. It is an online creative and technical marathon, where participants work from home. More specifically it is a six-day brainstorm from an idea to its implementation. You learn new tools, come up with and implement a project, find a team of like-minded people, receive expert advice and get your ideas evaluated, and pitch your results in the final. So sort of a [...]
Space4CC is one of the Best Ideas winners of the MyEUSpace competition. We were represented with a booth and received a prize at the EU Agency for the Space Programme EUSPA's Entrepreneurship days in Prague 27-28 June 2023. As a consequence Space4CC is now one of the so-called rising stars start-ups identified by EUSPA. A team consisting of our collaborators from the National Observatory of Athens and Space4CC team, a first demo of concepts and services was created and shown at our Space4CC booth.
Space4CC has established a collaboration with the National Observatory of Athens. We are joining our complementary resources benefiting from synergies across projects and networks with a long term horizon. First action already done is to make a mock-up of the Space4CC idea for a holistic decision support tool that includes integrating both space-based, in-situ and citizen-generated information. The National Observatory of Athens highly skilled and created development team is applying their experience with creating their air quality app as a basis for this first mock-up. This mock-up will be presented at the EUSPA – EU Agency for the space programme [...]
