NEARCH RSR projects live!

By: Krijn Boom

CommonSites and NEARCH are proud to present the launch of 16 new projects on the CommonSites platform.

A couple of months ago we reported the collaboration between CommonSites and the NEARCH project in our blog section, touching upon the fact that NEARCH RSR projects were under development. Last week  those 16 projects, ranging from computerized learning to collaboration between archaeologists and the arts industry, went live and as a result the CommonSites RSR platform now houses 50 cultural heritage projects. The NEARCH projects, which are funded through the EU culture 2007 programme, depict the latest and greatest in ways of communication in archaeology.  ‘New ways of Engaging audiences, Activating societal relations and Renewing practices in Cultural Heritage’, NEARCH aims to increase communication and involvement between stakeholders in archaeology and aims their attention specifically towards archaeological communities, something which we, as CommonSites, want to stimulate as much as possible.

The NEARCH projects on the CommonSites RSR platform are part of the website of NEARCH which is currently under development by one of NEARCH’s partners Inrap. On that website the projects will be implemented through the widget system and each project will have a dedicated page explaining all the project details. The NEARCH website is due to launch this Friday, but we will give you a heads-up when this happens, through Facebook and Twitter.

In the meantime, please have a look at the projects here and see if there is something to your liking!
