Leader : Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique
WP4 plans, coordinates and monitors all activities around research and content preparation all along the project.
Collection-holding partners will be principally responsible for content preparation, including metadata enrichment whenever necessary, encoding and uploading to the platform.
Research partners will contribute content to contextualize the AV collections on the two e-environments (scholars and public). They will also develop new research projects taking advantage of the consolidated collections about all the cities.
WP4 will also foster research beyond the consortium, e.g. by planning and organising conferences and call for papers, and also by offering some research grants for scholars who are not members of the consortium, for further research around the topic of Media and Cities.
