Our last meeting took place online on 22.11.22 from 9.00am-3.00pm.

In the morning, we wanted to use practical examples from various European countries to take a look at the question of whether and how technical infrastructures and data can be decolonised and what approaches to this already exist in the institutions presented. What changes are technically possible at all? And what are the challenges in this process in smaller institutions, but also in larger more extensive institutional associations? An important focus is also the cooperation with different actors who are not part of the institution.
We used the afternoon (after an input on NFDI4Culture) for a discussion of cross-network issues.
