“In our archives, libraries, museums and other memory institutions are a huge amount of extraordinary documents, books, pictures etc. Unfortunately, only a small number of people can understand and interpret them. In the Time Machine project, I see a big opportunity to show people how amazing and interesting history is and how important it is to know about it. It is also a big challenge for us to take advantage of the digital era to be able to care better about our cultural heritage. The possibility to share knowledge, to think together and to create new tools is unique and today very much needed. The results of the common effort will be usable for a wide spectrum of institutions and above all for the wide public.”
