Scientific Assistant Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage Belgium > Other

I hold degrees in Art History and in Library and Information Science, and I work since 2000 at the Royal Institute of Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA), where I am now responsible for the photographic inventory, library, databases and digitisation and for national and international projects.
During multiple European projects (f.i. Partage Plus, AthenaPus) we managed to contribute 145.371 items (and a multitude of photographs of these items) to Europeana, and this for a rather small institution. Other non-Europeana linked projects I’m involved with are Iperion CH (scientific research on cultural heritage) and Preforma (conformance checking of file formats for long-term preservation).
