Every half year the ICARUS community gets together at the so-called ICARUS−Meeting for the purpose of welcoming new members and updating each other on the latest developments, project and work group progress. The meetings also serve as venues for exchanging experiences and knowledge about archival work and for envisioning and developing ideas for new projects and future cooperation.
It is at these meetings that the international network of institutions comes together, and the people behind the institutions meet face-to-face. We as a community are convinced that these get-togethers where information and ideas are shared professionally contribute to ICARUS’ success to a great extent: it is at these meetings where personal relations are established and trust in each others capabilities is built and deepened, so that thriving and sustainable synergies can flourish in the long-term.
Each ICARUS−Meeting is hosted by a member institution and organised in close cooperation with the ICARUS headquarters in Vienna (AT). The dates for these 3-day meetings usually fall in late spring and autumn. For detailed information on upcoming meetings, please take a look at our Event Calender below.
The event’s motto: “co:operative Estonia“.
The event’s location: The brand new archive’s building “Noora“.
Within the meeting not only will the participants be able to learn more about the best of Estonian digital heritage projects as well as the National Archives’ best practices but also about cooperation projects across national borders. Furthermore, the event will inform on Estonian e-Resedency, a transnational digital identity, and how one can even apply for it.
Within the meeting, the ICARUS Didactics Group invites to a workshop on the Topotheques by the example of the Museum of Agricultural Sciences (MUSA) in Italy. More information on the workshop’s content is available here.
The meeting takes place in the cozy university town Tartu – town of students, intellectuals and creatives. We are happy to invite you to the brand new main building of the National Archives of Estonia which is situated in “Silicon Valley” of Tartu.
