Virtual Museum Transnational Network

Project description

Digital Libraries and Digital Preservation The project aims to provide the cultural heritage sector with Virtual Museums that are educational, enjoyable, long-lasting and easy to maintain.

Virtual Museums are personalised, immersive, interactive experiences that enhance our understanding of the world around us. The term 'Virtual Museum' is a general one that covers various types of digital creations including virtual reality and 3D.

The V-MusT.net partners aim at resolving the problem of research fragmentation in this field and at sharing the knowledge required to integrate Virtual Museums into the broader museum domain in a sustainable way. This will be achieved by connecting different technological domains, by integrating social and cognitive sciences, by providing state-of-the-art digital preservation and authoring tools.

Areas of activity:

  • To define a knowledge base and a common language related to the Virtual Museum field and to identify problems, needs and requirements through discussion groups.
  • To build a theoretical model of Virtual Museums, with input from the fields of communication, cognitive science and ontology.
  • To identify a service platform with infrastructural components and integrated services.
  • To identify useful tools based on visualisation, interaction and new output devices, resulting in guidelines for the Virtual Museum of the Future.
  • To develop a Mobility Programme (V-Move), a Training Programme (V-MusTer.School) and an Educational Programme.
  • To build an experimental laboratory, to create Virtual Museum test beds and to develop a 'Transmedia Project' containing several Virtual Museums that use different communicative media (e.g. video, multimedia, interactive games).
