MA program in Heritage Management

As part of its mission in promoting education and good practices in the field of heritage management, the Heritage Management Origanization also oversees the jointly awarded by Kent University and the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) MA program in Heritage Management. 

The MA Heritage Management is a unique intensive three semester (one and a half academic year) postgraduate program, taught exclusively in English, which combines the worlds of archaeology and business and is taught in Athens at Elefsina, an area of world-class archaeological significance. It focuses on teaching the skills required for the management of heritage sites across the world and how to effectively work with archaeologists, architects, conservators, stakeholders, marketing and education specialists while fundraising and supervising specific projects (http://www.heritage.aueb.gr)

For the academic year 2018-2019, there are new scholarship opportunities for worthy candidates: 
1) One Bageion Foundation scholarship, worth €8000 (€4000 a year for two years) will be awarded annually to a good candidate from southern Albania(irrespective of nationality), with a preference to the area of Korçë-Korytsa. Successful candidates will have to demonstrate that there is a family connection to the area of preference of the scholarship and are encouraged to declare their interest to the area. 
The Bageion Foundation is one of the oldest foundations of Greece established during his lifetime by Ioannis Bagkas, a self-made immigrant to Alexandria Egypt, then Romania and then Athens from his hometown of Korytsa, Albania. Bagkas, remarkably in 1886, and before his own death, gave all his property to the Greek state keeping only an allowance of 1000 drachmas a month.
2) Four Bodossaki foundation half-scholarships will be awarded, each worth €3750, to worthy, deserving candidates. 
The Bodossaki Foundation was established in 1972 and is one of the most respected privately owned public-benefit organizations in Greece. It is the result of a long, strenuous and consistent effort of its founder, Prodromos Bodossakis – Athanasiadis to support the state, the society and his fellow people, as a legacy of the tradition he himself carried. The Bodossaki Foundation is currently active in four main strategic pillars: education, health, protection of the environment and the empowerment of civil society in Greece.
Inquiries for the MA program scholarships, should be addressed to Ms. Vasia Terzi at heritage@aueb.gror at v.terzi@kent.ac.uk

Photography and Photogrammetry in Cultural Heritage

HMO Training Heritage Leaders
Summer 2018
Executive Leadership Development in Heritage Management Workshops
Photography and Photogrammetry in Cultural Heritage
11-15 June, 2018
Location: Nafplion, Greece

Digital image acquisition and processing offers a wide range of deliverables for the documentation of cultural heritage. 3D models, orthophotos or point clouds are indispensable tools for the documentation and monitoring of our heritage and allow a better understanding of the objects under research. The construction of these products is based on various concepts in photography, photogrammetry and computer vision, which are available via easy-to-use software and generally available hardware. 
During this workshop, various techniqueswill be addressed and demonstrated during lectures and hands-on field work. Participants will get familiar with various digital tools (photography, photogrammetry, 3D modelling and model referencing, 360° photography, and vectorization in CAD or GIS) by covering the entire workflow from image acquisition via data processing to model publishing. After this workshop, participants will be able to apply these techniques in a wide range of applications (heritage management, archaeology, curatorial work etc.), concerning the various parameters for high quality 3D models and orthophotos.
The workshop’s instructor, Cornelis Stal, is a lecturer and researcher at the University College Ghent and Ghent University (Belgium), where he is working on surveying engineering, geomatics and image-based 3D modelling. Within the framework of his research, he has participated in various archaeological and anthropological field campaigns, where the topics of this workshop are empirically implemented in an interdisciplinary context.
This workshop is organized within the context of our organization’s mission to document the most historically significant structures of the city of Nafplion, the first capital of modern Greece, and which serves as the education arm of a larger research project conducted by the Heritage Management Organization in collaboration with CAST, ETH Zurich, Leica and other partners aiming to create and promote applications for the use of 3D documentation for heritage management.
·      The course (participation) fees, in this first piloting phase, will be 300 euros (travel expenses are not included)
