C-Factor is member of the European consortium DigiTraining (Creative Europe programme — Digital and Audiovisual Capacity Building for Accessible Heritage).
DigiTraining, funded by the European Commission under the Creative Europe Programme, is specifically targeted to benefit small or midsize museums, as well as other tangible or intangible cultural heritage organizations which include structures and facilities accessible to the general public. The project, which will run until July 2022, responds to the urgent need for providing specific support to the cultural and creative heritage sector in a challenging environment. DigiTraining will provide a large number of selected organizations new and upgraded digital audio-visual capabilities combined with the management tools and knowledge tools to maximise the benefit from them.
The DigiTraining Consortium is composed by highly experienced public and private organizations from five different countries. The Consortium is led by the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) based in Greece, who combines its solid research and technological education expertise with that of ARMINES, France’s largest private non-profit research and technological structure involving also large academic training activities. Portugal based innovation specialists INOVA+ will provide leading strategic management capacity building activities. Denmark’s Khora, a leader in virtual reality and augmented reality production in cultural heritage, will offer strategic input in the development of audio-visual installations for a very targeted selection of beneficiaries. The Consortium is completed by two organizations providing their deep expertise and understanding of the European cultural and creative sector needs and structures: Culture & Media Agency Europe aisbl (CUMEDIAE), from Belgium, and C-FACTOR, from France.
