The Digital Cultural Heritage Research Network brings together colleagues from across the University of Edinburgh and the cultural heritage sector.

DCHRN is a professional network for people investigating digital cultural heritage issues, including perspectives from diverse disciplines including design, education, sociology, law, cultural studies, informatics and business, and from a wide range of cultural heritage organisations in Edinburgh and beyond. Three events in early 2016 launched the network, which now serves as a valuable hub for expertise, collaborations and ideas in this emerging field. The network continues to hold events regularly, and new members are welcome to join - email if you would like to be added to the email list. 

Lightning talks and presentations from the first DCHRN event.
