eCultSkills at Glasgow Dialogue Day!

The 4th eCult Dialogue Day that will be held on 13 May 2015 in Glasgow, on the occasion of the EMYA – European Museum of the Year event, is under the motto: « Museums responsing to the digital world ». For this reason, eCultSkills representatives were invited to present the findings of the new job profiles in the cultural sector: Museum staff of the 21th century need more skills than before – the developed profiles will help cultural institutions to identify skills and competences and will give guidelines how to integrate them into their overall strategy. eCult Dialogue Days started 2 years ago with the purpose of bringing together two types of stakeholders usually not in « natural » interaction: technology developers and cultural heritage institutions. The success of the past events convinced the continuation of this series!
