Trilce Navarrete is researcher with interest in the historic and economic aspects of digital heritage.

My research is driven by an interest to support evidence based policy to increase the use of digital heritage in our lives. I advocate for the greater E’s: equity, efficiency, and effectiveness in the (re)use of heritage knowledge. I have studied the adoption of computers in museums, archives and libraries from an individual, institutional, national, and international perspective. An important source of inspiration has been the role of knowledge sharing across generations to stimulate innovation. More specifics on my research can be found here.

I have actively participated in international communities as speaker, researcher, and organizer. I regularly present at universities, academic meetings and conferences, generally around the subjects of heritage, digital, policy and cultural economics. You can see many presentations here. I have been involved in the monitoring and evaluation of several digital heritage efforts, including the Dutch National Digital Heritage Infrastructure and Europeana. I am co-founder and co-editor of the EconomistsTalkArt.org blog. More recently, we launched the Cultural Economics Online Seminar (CEOS). Past seminars are available in the YouTube channel.
