Pericles project
Promoting and Enhancing Reuse of Information throughout the Content Lifecycle taking account of Evolving Semantics




PERICLES is an Integrated Project funded by the European Union under its Seventh Framework Programme (ICT Call 9), and the project was launched on 20th February at a reception in the East Room of Tate Modern in London, as part of the project’s two-day kick-off meeting on the 20th and 21st February 2013.


PERICLES will run from 1st February 2013 for 48 months, and will be looking at the preservation challenges raised by highly complex and dynamic digital material from two quite different areas: the one hand, digital artworks and media from Tate’s collections and archives; on the other hand, experimental scientific data originating from the European Space Agency and International Space Station.


The evening was introduced by Professor Nigel Llewellyn, Head of Research at Tate, and included contributions from Professor Andrew Prescott, Head of the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London, and Professor Evelyn Welch, the newly-appointed Vice-Principal for Arts and Sciences at King’s.
