Katrin Glinka’s presentation will share insights from her professional work in the museum field as well as from her applied research that builds on the re-use of open GLAM data. She will highlight the potentials of openness for cultural institutions, which she illustrates with examples from her own work as well as from related projects and research.

Furthermore, her keynote will reflect upon how we can use digital technologies to positively impact and change GLAM institutions, ranging from recent developments in digital communication and interpretation to how institutions operate behind the scenes. Finally, she will discuss whether and in what way digital technologies and openness, in particular, can have an impact on the relevance of GLAM institutions in society.
