On Thursday, the 19th of March 2020, we submitted two 3 Million EUR grants to the European Commission. One project aims at building a European Network to establish Book CT as a method to access cultural information in historical books non-invasively from Scanning over Handwritten-Text-Recognition and Writer Identification to Knowledge Modelling. The other project, Odeuropa, deals with the recovery of scent and smell from historical sources and their synthesis. Deep learning models will be used to link images and text directly to odour generation of which we expect that will add a completely new dimension to historical analyses. In total, 61 projects have been submitted to the call of which five will be selected for funding. Let’s hope for the best!
