IMPULSE Kick-off meeting at the Jagiellonian University

IMPULSE Kick-off meeting at the Jagiellonian University

The IMPULSE project (IMmersive digitalization: uPcycling cULtural heritage towards new reviving StratEgies), funded within the framework of the Horizon Europe programme, was officially kicked off in the JU Auditorium Maximum. The project, coordinated by Dr Żaneta Kubic from the JU Museum Collegium Maius, received a grant of nearly 3.4 million euro, and will be carried out within the next 36 months.

IMPULSE is the first project coordinated by a Polish institution and the first one to be realised at the Jagiellonian University with funding from the European Commission as part of the Cluster 2 Horizon Europe Work Programme ‘Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society’ in the area of research and innovation for  European cultural heritage and creative industries.

The consortium coordinated by the Jagiellonian University will comprise ten institutions from all over Europe: Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium), University of Bologna (Italy), University of Malta, Heritage Malta, Konrad Wolf Film University of Babelsberg (Germany), National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece), Magna Zmien Foundation (Malta), Cultural and Creative Clust-ER (Italy), K8 Institut für strategische Ästhetik gGmbH (Germany) and ExplodedView sp. z.o.o. (Poland). More than 80 people will participate in the project, including 24 researchers from four JU Faculties: Management and Social Communication, Law and Administration, International and Political Studies and Philosophy.

‘In the fast-evolving landscape of European cultural heritage digitisation, it is important to improve accessibility, interoperability, and innovative (re)use of digital collections. However, this is not easy. Limitations extend to adapting legal frameworks for contemporary transformations and creative endeavours. In this context, the EU-funded IMPULSE project aims to revolutionise digitisation methods, and foster a more immersive, accessible, and interconnected experience for diverse audiences in the realms of education, arts, and cultural and creative sectors. By using Extended Reality (XR), it intends to engage underrepresented communities. IMPULSE integrates visual arts and dance performances through pilots and prototypes. Its collaborative approach includes a Community of Practice, a Hackathon, and an Acceleration & Mentoring Hub, connecting stakeholders for capacity building in immersive digitisation’, reads the project’s description on its official website.

The kick-off meeting began a two-day discussion of the IMPULSE team regarding the next steps of the project, which was streamed live via MS Teams. Participants debated on the main goals and expected outcomes of the project, also touching upon a number of ethical issues. Some of the speakers included Weronika Gawęda and Mikołaj Pyczak (National Centre for Research and Development), Natalia Cetera (Centrum Cyfrowe), Magdalena Banaszkiewicz (Jagiellonian University), Marcin Klimek (ExplodedView), Dr Adnan Hadziselimovic (University of Malta), Prof. Dimitris Charitos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens), Dr Bruno Vandermeulen (Catholic University of Leuven), Dr Joanna Ślaga (JU Museum Collegium Maius) and Dr Valentina Gianfrate (University of Bologna). The discussion was chaired by Dr Żaneta Kubic and Dr Paloma Korycińska (Jagiellonian University).
