ArcTron 3D is a consortium partner in the EU-funded project Initial Training Networks for Digital Cultural Heritage (ITN-DCH).

“Cultural heritage” is an integral element of Europe and contributes decisively to the formation of a cultural European identity. It is also one of the most important assets for managing Europe’s social and economic development. For the first time, ITN-DCH aims to bring together top universities, research institutes, industry, SMEs, heritage authorities, museums, cultural interest groups and end users worldwide to train the next generation of researchers in the field of digital cultural heritage.

In line with ArcTron 3D’s specialization, one of our project priorities is to translate the intelligent three-dimensional capture, visualization, modeling and presentation of cultural heritage with combined 3D technologies into appropriate developments and training concepts.

The Early Stage Researcher at ArcTron 3D is responsible for laser scanning, structured light scanning and photogrammetry. Diego Bellido Castañeda has held this position since February 2015. He studied at the University of Santiago de Compostela and received his Master’s degree in Geodesy and Cartography Engineering from the University of Madrid.

The final project conference took place from the 23rd to 25th of May, 2017 in Olim (Slovenia).

The aim of the conference was to promote discussions between young researchers, scientists and experts in the field of digital applications for the analysis of cultural heritage object/practices, and to stimulate the exchange of ideas and opinions.

The conference provided an ideal platform to highlight new research opportunities and professional cooperation. In addition, the event supported the connection between different disciplines as well as the establishment of networks of young researchers.
