The application, submitted by the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Foundation's Armenian Genocide Victims’ Documentation and Data Collection Department within the framework of the RA ESSC Committee of Higher Education and Science’s competition for the modernisation of the equipment base of the scientific divisions, has been approved. It is planned to purchase 27 devices within this financing framework. The project, aimed at re-equipping the museum-institute with modern technical means, will allow:
a. The re-invigoration of the sub-discipline of oral history.
b. The continuous collection and research of the oral histories of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th generations of the descendants of the victims and survivors of the Armenian Genocide, in order to enrich the planned appropriate database. It will aid the work of field and fact-gathering to be carried out in the most systematic and accurately organised manner, as this requires high-quality video recording, processing and storage of all these valuable data.
c. To collect and research the testimonies of forcibly displaced Armenians from Artsakh, which may contribute not only to scientific studies, but also to legal processes.
The AGMI will have, as a result of the implementation of this project, the opportunity to improve the standard of visibility of scientific research and to promote cooperation with Armenian and foreign scientific and educational organisations as well as individual researchers. The project will also contribute to the implementation of AGMI educational and cultural programmes.
