The final CSA Time Machine conference has taken place in Brussels, on February 17 2020. Leire Leguina, Project Manager of POSTDATA has participated in the conference, since POSTDATA is participating as a member of this important cultural initiative.

The managing team has presented the concrete next steps for Time Machine in 2020 and beyond, bringing into focus all of the hard work and valuable input provided during the previous 12-month CSA project.

Within this time, more than 600 institutions from science, industry, cultural heritage and civil society have joined the Time Machine Organisation. Frédéric Kaplan, professor for Digital Humanities at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and president of the Time Machine Organisation (TMO) stated: “Over the coming years, the Time Machine Organisation will coordinate the development of a number of key components through dedicated projects in the Horizon 2020 framework and future EU funding programmes”.

The Time Machine project joins Europe’s rich past with the future of digital breakthroughs, creating a living resource that allows you to travel not only through space, but through time. Time Machine builds a large scale simulator mapping 2000 years of European History, transforming kilometres of archives and large collections from museums into a digital information system. These Big Data of the Past are common resources for the future that will have a huge cultural, economical and societal impact.
