Representatives from 6 Mediterranean countries working closely together on the development of an ICT Mediterranean platform for UNESCO cultural heritage under the EU-funded iHERITAGE project, met for the project’s 2nd Steering Committee Meeting.

During the two consecutive days, project team members discussed various pending issues and topics such as the further activation of the Living Labs, potential project promotion in online events held in each of the 6 participating countries and the establishment of spin-offs.

The iHERITAGE project is set to make numerous positive changes and offer significant benefits for people of various backgrounds who will be directly and indirectly affected by the ambitious project activities and outputs in terms of enhanced accessibility to UNESCO world heritage sites, the creation of multiple job opportunities as well as the direct integration of researches among universities, researchers and SMEs into the world of ICT and cultural heritage, to name a few.

iHERITAGE’s objective is to support technological transfer and commercialisation of new AR/VR (Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality) tools aimed at enhancing the access to Mediterranean UNESCO cultural heritage through augmented and immersive experiences, by creating cross-border living labs for research and innovation.
