VAST project has become an Associate Partner of the UNCHARTED project with a view to exchange knowledge for supporting, understanding, capturing and fostering the societal value of culture and the impact of cultural policies in Europe. Particularly, the collaboration between VAST and UNCHARTED can be developed on the basis of the promotion of the use and experimentation of digital techniques and tools for the preservation of the common European cultural heritage as well as of the promotion of participatory approaches in culture.
