Project

I-Treasures

Framework

I-Treasures is an Integrated project (IP) co-funded in 2012 by the EU in the 7th Framework Programme, IST-ICT. It addresses Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH), specifically the endeavour to capture and preserve ICH and raise awareness about it. Culture is not limited to physical entities such as architecture, historical monuments or collections of artifacts but also comprises intangible expressions such as music, dance, theatre and craftsmanship.

Objectives

The main objective of i-Treasures is to develop an open and extendable platform to provide access to ICH resources, enable knowledge exchange between researchers and contribute to the transmission of rare know-how from Living Human Treasures to apprentices. To this end, the project aims to go beyond the mere digitization of cultural content. Its main contribution is the creation of new knowledge by proposing novel methodologies and new technological paradigms for the analysis and modelling of ICH. Combining conventional learning procedures and advanced services, such as Singing Voice Synthesis and sensorimotor learning through an interactive 3D environment, i-Treasures is expected to break new ground in education and knowledge transfer of ICH.
