On November 15, 2022, our MEMEX final event took place after three years of activities!
Partners were glad to present the project’s social and technological results and open a discussion on inclusion, technology and cultural heritage through a European policy round table. The event started with a presentation of the project's outputs by the consortium which fed the discussion of the European Policy round table which featured representatives from the European Commission, United Cities and Local Governments and independent experts (Yamam Al Zubaidi and Tania Adams). The round table attempted to reflect on the ways in which technology can foster social inclusion of communities, in a wider policy framework, basing the reflection on the third and final Policy Brief of the project.
