2nd Interim report on its way

With three out of five years of the OpenArch behind us, also most of the work is done. We still have four conferences ahead of us, and many products to be made. The eleven partners of OpenArch are looking back, working on the 2nd interim report for Brussels. They will mention what they did, when and with whom they did it, how much time and money they spent and what the results were. The OpenArch Operational manager will then compile a full report which goes to Brussels soon. If Brussels agrees, this will mean we can continue on the chosen road, with a new part of the EU funding.

Visually Impaired visit to Archeon

On September 1st 2013, as part of the ongoing Dialogue with the Visitor, Archeon was host to a large group of visually impaired visitors.
