Over the years, VAST-LAB has become a point of reference for the development and coordination of European research projects concerning the field of ICT and Cultural Heritage.
To date, VAST-LAB has participated in eight major international projects, and has coordinated five of these
Education has always been a key point of VAST-LAB’s projects, the focus being on the creation of expertise and the training of researchers able to engage and find solutions to the problems that are specific to the field of cultural heritage. The CHIRON project (Cultural Heritage Informatics Research Oriented Network), specifically oriented towards training and research, provided excellent tools that allowed European institutions to exchange researchers, and enabled the circulation of knowledge and creation of new competencies.
Similarly, ARIADNE and PARTHENOS are investing resources in the creation of advanced competencies in the research sector at the European level.
