Digital Heritage & Culture research platform is a blog that deals with new technologies, trends and innovations in the field of cultural heritage. Its “Seen from inside” formats, conversations with experts and scientific notes, are written in simple language for a wide audience.

The themes are selected from the analysis of the latest events and cultural happenings: what is being talked about, what is being written. The new technology sector grows and develops rapidly and constantly. If yesterday mobile applications were at the peak of popularity, today experiences, virtual reality and immersion are in the spotlight. Maybe tomorrow, artificial intelligence will replace the logistics of this blog.

The purpose of the platform is to analyze, deepen and understand what is happening, capture the latest trends, study them in detail (both in situ and online) and prepare a comprehensive 4all post.

The blog was born in Barcelona and practically all posts have been written here. But the course has changed and the blog has become a digital nomad. Now the trips, the new itineraries and the new points of view that they contribute, are the main purpose of the investigation.
