It was presented to potential candidate of the National Science Fair. This year's theme was "Science, shaping tomorrow's world and transforming the economy".
The project was presented in the DSI Webinar: Benefits of sharing content with Europeana, in order to contribute with the experience of an European Project within this framework. The event was organized by MUSEU aggregator, managed by Michael Culture, within the Europeana Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) Initiative.

The project participated in the symposium “Cultural heritage and social impact: Digital technologies for social inclusion and participation” organized by CultureLabs project (funded from H2020 programme). This one-day symposium discussed how digital ecosystems shape the dynamics between institutions (including museums and academic institutions) and communities, leading to new models of collaboration and interaction around heritage and culture.
Among 12 presentations, MEMEX explored how digital technologies can support institutions to become more connected and open to different communities.
The project was presented on the 17 of December 2020 at the online event "Opportunities and synergies between Horizon 2020, Creative Europe-Culture, and Europe with Citizens" organized by the Creative Europe Desk of Spain.
The aim of the event was to show the funding opportunities and possibles synergies between EU Programmes like Creative Europe-Culture, Horizon 2020 and Europe for Citizens. MEMEX will be one of the practical cases described during the event.
