ARK4 wants to create a virtual dialogue between the public and institutions involved in the project through gaming activities. In its new phase, the project aims in re-using digital content from the Cultural Heritage sector, mainly deriving from Europeana, to reach a wider audience through knowledge testing games. ARK4 is a project-collaboration among four institutions in Trondheim: NTNU University Library; NTNU Department of Computer and Information Science (IDI); Regional State Archives in Trondheim and Norwegian Deaf Museum and an international partner: Athena Digital Unit RC in Athens, Greece. During this collaboration, workshops were held focusing on introducing new technologies in teaching.

The technical responsibility for the quiz had Dimitris Gavrilis and Eleni Afiontzi (Athena RC) while the curation of the content was undertaken by Agiatis Benardou and Eliza Papaki (Athena RC).
