Programme and Speakers

The main themes of the conference will be “Data Spaces, Artificial Intelligence, and Cluster Collaboration”, featuring speakers from the GLAM sector and information management field from Finland and across Europe. The “Data Spaces” theme of the event will cover perspectives on data space, shared data and also more specifically development activities in different networks related to this topic, for example Europeana and our Time Machine Initiative.

The “Artificial Intelligence” aspect will highlight future possibilities for the use of artificial intelligence in the archive, library and museum sector, as well as in the field of information management in general.

The “Collaboration” theme brings together the strong role of cooperations in creating the future, in terms of co-development and co-creation, ecosystem collaboration and interconnection with other actors to develop a common future and knowledge.

Speakers come from a variety of institutions, many of them part of our Finnish TMO community, and we will have Time Machine Ambassador and Europeana Network Association Board Member Juha Henriksson present “Europeana, Time Machine, and the European data space for cultural heritage”.
