Welcome to the website of the project DISTILL: DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES
IN INNOVATION LABS FOR DIGITAL CULTURAL HERITAGE

This project is financially supported by the Petar Beron programme of the Bulgarian National Science Fund in 2021-2022.

DISTILL is an individual research project of Dr. Milena Dobreva hosted by Prof. Krassen Stefanov.

The host institution is the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics of University of Sofia St Kliment Ohridski.

DISTILL addresses the challenge of exploring the changing landscape of innovation diffusion in digital cultural heritage focusing on three major factors for change: the large scale digital collections (growing towards big data) and the challenges they bring to the users interested to use and reuse this digital content; the emerging services aimed at helping users (innovation labs), and the new thinking about the generation of value with the participation of multiple contributors where the contributors have little or no compensation (heteromation).

Project funding: 60,000.00 EUR

Duration: November 2020 – November 2022


“Innovation Labs happen and succeed because of people rather than spaces. Success relates to skills and competencies as well as to decision-making, empowerment, trust, tolerance, and investment by thinking outside the box.”

Dr. Georgios Papaioannou (Ionian University, Corfu, Greece)
