CIPA wants to draw your attention to the newly established Tech4Culture, a doctoral programme that is specifically focused on technologies applied to cultural heritage. The program is organised by the University of Torino (Italy), with the support of the European Commission and the banking foundation Compagnia di San Paolo. All information about Tech4Culutre can be found on the official webpage.
