Hybrid Seminar: Symbolic Value of Industrial & Technical Heritage

c

Embracing many different types of industrial and transport heritage, this was held as a hybrid event at Donau University Krems in collaboration with the EN Industrial & Engineering Heritage Committee on Friday 1.07. Those present in person included Harald Baminger, Chairman of the Austrian Member OEMT, Prof Piotr Gerber from the Polish member Silesian Railway Museum and Peter Ovenstone, FEDECRAIL team member. In addition, we were joined by about 40 participants online. It provided a good opportunity to introduce a new audience to the Working Industrial & Mobile Heritage (WIMH) platform project. FEDECRAIL President Jaap Nieweg gave a short presentation on the WIMH aims and the fossil fuel and other concerns during the morning session.  For those not present, it will be possible to sample some of the presentations online – the University is creating later this summer an edited version of the proceedings. Weblink details once available will be circulated via the FEDECRAIL website news page and a future issue of Update.
