20 – 21 November 2015: First DIGITENS Project Meeting:

At the first meeting of the DIGITENS Project, the Editorial Committee, made up of members from UBO, Paris 13, Greenwich, Northumbria, Richmond University London, Greifswald and McGill, outlined the details for project’s participation in the MSCA-RISE 2020 scheme. The RISE scheme encourages staff exchange between academic and non-academic institutions. The exchange would allow members to research entry subjects as well as disseminate the DIGITENS project. In the meeting, the category subjects for the encyclopaedia entries were confirmed, 20 draft entry subjects were also decided on, that would be completed for the next meeting as a trial. The participants were also decided for the project, and new possible partners were suggested for the team to contact.
