Training Course for Public Servants on the Digitisation of Cultural Heritage. Skopje, FYR Macedonia. 13-17 December 2010

The Skopje Regional Centre for Digitisation of Cultural Heritage (RECEDIG) will launch a one-week national training course to celebrate the final phase of the establishment of the Centre. The related project, financed since 2004 by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Italian Development Cooperation) and managed by the UNESCO Venice Office, is approaching its conclusion.


To mark the successful implementation of the project, and reinforce the capacity of local professionals, this one-week training course, with the participation of international trainers and experts, will build upon the training activities carried out during the project’s previous phases, and enable participants to better operate in future in the field of collection, storage, and management of digital archives data.

The training programme will include a public session for the presentation of the project final results, with the participation of representatives from UNESCO, the Macedonian Ministry of Culture, and the Italian Embassy in Sarajevo.

Beyond its national dimension and functions, the Centre will operate as a platform for strengthening cooperation on the digitisation of cultural heritage in South-Eastern Europe, as part of the UNESCO Venice Office strategy for the creation of regional centres of excellence in the various domains of cultural heritage safeguarding and promotion. The Centre will operate to promote professional exchange, coordination, standardisation, and the sharing of good practices between the countries of South-Eastern Europe.

The provisional programme is available for download from the right menu.
