Project value: 1.934.308,50 EUR


The project:
Across Europe Ceramic has always played an important role in people's everyday lives, whether in private or public space, ceramic encompasses us and is daily used by us. The development of European ceramics was heavily influenced by the different regional cultural influences, techniques and uses. Ceramic is a unifying element and reflects simultaneously regional differences in traditions, lifestyles, and social as well as economic behaviour. Ceramic is a distinct means of expression and thus allows individual expression. Due to its characteristics and the numerous scopes for design, ceramic takes on an important role in people's lives, and this will not change in the future.

The project Ceramics and its Dimensions brings museums, universities, and companies together to investigate the various aspects of the issue from all angles – culturally, academically, and industrially – and thus to create sustainable results. Through the use of digital media, the results of the project will be made available to a wide audience. A virtual campus will allow a vibrant and diverse exchange between all project partners and the public.
