Sharing local cultural heritage online with LoCloud services

5th February 2016, 9.00 – 5.30, Amersfoort, Netherlands

Sharing local cultural heritage online with LoCloud services is a conference organised by the LoCloud project. It provides an opportunity to share, discuss and demonstrate tools, services and content in the context of Europeana. The conference provides an opportunity to reflect on the results achieved by LoCloud and look to the future. During the conference we will show-case the LoCloud “My local heritage” competition and present awards to the winners.
