Cultural Heritage Leading Urban Futures: CLIC at the ROCK Open Knowledge Week

The CLIC project is more than happy to participate in the Open Knowledge Week “Cultural Heritage Leading Urban Futures”, a virtual conference for city officers, policy-makers, urban researchers, cultural actors and civic changemakers. The digital event, taking place from 27 to 30 October, marks the closure of the ROCK project, an Innovation Action funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme and led by the City of Bologna, engaging 33 partners across 13 countries in exploring how cultural heritage can be the driving force behind urban sustainability.

The event offers an extensive programme of 20 sessions with 50+ speakers and hundreds of participants over 4 days. CLIC looks forward to meeting you all at the ROCK Exhibition: discover our virtual booth and interact with the project team to learn about CLIC activities, outputs and forthcoming initiative; learn about  relevant EU-funded projects focusing on cultural heritage and get inspired by the many advanced technological solutions developed by ROCK partners over the past three years to shape sustainable, heritage-led urban futures!

During ROCK CityTalks and Campfire Sessions held on the first three days, city representatives will present their flagship urban interventions implemented at the local level, share stories of change and discuss lessons learnt. Thematic Online Seminars on the final day of the conference will bring together academic experts, city representatives and local stakeholders to discuss theoretical and practical approaches to cultural heritage from three perspectives – Accessibility, Sustainability, and Innovative Partnerships, the three ROCK pillars. The afternoon programme will feature six parallel Open Knowledge Sessions, where key ROCK outputs will be presented to stimulate a dialogue between researchers and the audience.

Throughout the ROCK Open Knowledge Week, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with speakers. Register to ROCKnRoll Networking activities to have random one-to-one virtual meetups. Outside of the live sessions, enjoy a virtual coffee break with CLIC!
