The Art of Content Curation, a free live event in Amsterdam - Jan.14th 2015

The Art of Content Curation, a free live event in Amsterdam - Jan.14th 2015 | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:

If you live or plan to be in or near Amsterdam in the second week of January you may want to take note of this one-of-a-kind free event totally designed around the topic of curation.


"The Art of Curation" will take off on Wed the 14th from 5pm highlighted by a line-up of short-presentations focusing on different aspects of content curation, from the legal to the educational and commercial ones.


Speakers include:

  • Klaas Joosten – ZEEF
  • Coen Koppen – HowardsHome
  • Wout Laban – Gibbon.co
  • Eric Kokke – GOopleidingen
  • Merel Teunissen – Versteeg Wigman Sprey Advocaten
  • Dr Jan Hein Hoogstad
  • Marian Pronk


The strategic relevance of content curation in the future of online information, search, learning and education is the focus of my closing presentation, where I will also showcase 10+ examples of online projects that represent tangible examples of how curation can also be an economically sustainable activity.


Of note is also the fact that the event takes place in the wonderfully restored 18th-century Herengracht 182 building designed by architect Ludwich Friedrick Druck in 1772 (one of Amsterdam's first houses to be built in Louis the Sixteenth style).



Why you may want not to miss this opportunity if you are into *content curation*?

- the place and the people already signed up are worth the time

- it looks like there may be good networking opportunities

- you never say no to free food and drinks when offered

- I'll be there



The event is free for everyone to attend.


N.B.: If you plan to participate you are kindly invited to reserve your seat.

in the past few days, I was wondering if such events were organized in Europe. I have the answer! Do you know if similar meetings have been taking place in universities?

Thanks Robin! Indeed a lot of meetings on data curation by scientists and library professionals. My concern relates more to what we are doing with Scoop.it, content curation, content meaning scientific information in published papers or grey literature. HappyHolidays
