H2020 NETCHER Updates – Trainings, MOOC and Final Forum
Earlier this month the NETCHER H2020 project held its Final Forum. The two-day online event (1st and 2nd March 2021), organized by the CCHT together with Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, presented the overall results and achievements of the project, final recommendations, research roadmaps and good practices, specifically addressing the issue of communication and awareness raising. The Forum marks the end of the NETCHER H2020 project started 27 months ago and that has seen in the last few weeks our Centre protagonist of multiple training actions.
A first online education programme, the NETCHER Remote Sensing to fight illicit excavation Training (NRST), has been held in January 2021 (January 19st-22nd, 2021) and aimed at training Cultural Heritage professionals in the use of Remote Sensing to identify evidence of archaeological sites’ looting. The NETCHER 3D Reconstruction of Cultural Heritage at Risk Training (NTRCHRT, February 15th-17th, 2021) online programme focused instead on 3D documentation and reconstruction of Cultural Heritage objects at risk to be stolen, trafficked, or damaged.
But it is not all over yet!
Our CCHT team have also developed a free MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) together with Ca’ Foscari University to provide the basics about Cultural Heritage Crimes and the main tools, both legislative and operational, to counter such phenomenon. The online course consists of 4 Teaching Units focused on legislation, art market, Cultural Heritage crime, resources and ethics. The MOOC, opened in March 1st, 2021, will run for four weeks on the EduOpen platform and will be relaunched twice over the next two years.
