Project news

The VÉgA was part of the CNRS Forum at the Cité internationale universitaire of Paris on 25 and 26 November 2017. The project team offered you an interactive and educational demonstration so that you could “Translate hieroglyphs through digital”.

VÉgA has been selected to participate to the CNRS Convention Innovatives SHS for the promotion of Humanities and Social Sciences in Marseille. On this occasion, the whole team is very happy to see the project succeed and to open the online dictionary to the public.

A few months ago VÉgA received the title Observeur du design 2016… and it will be presented at the “Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie” exhibition from December 11, 2015 to November 6, 2016. We invite you to come along and find out more about this fruitful collaboration between designers and researchers in the social science field.

Scientific collaborators and designers involved in the VÉgA project were in Strasbourg on November 5 and 6 for the 10th ISKO – France 2015 Conference 2015 , organised by the International Society Knowledge Organization.

Four scientific collaborators working on the VÉgA project went to Florence for one week for the 11th International Congress of Egyptologists (ICE XI) ! The poster presentation took place on Thursday 27 August – you can now view it here.
