iHERITAGE

Project overview

ICT Mediterranean platform for UNESCO cultural heritage

Funded by the ENI CBC MEDITERRANEAN SEA BASIN PROGRAMME 2014-2020 of the European Union

iHERITAGE will create an innovation-driven growth process involving a wide range of stakeholders from 6 Mediterranean countries through an integrated approach which will promote cross-border technological transfer, Living Labs, industry-academia collaboration, creation of spin offs and new products using the latest ICT technologies (AR/VR/MR), for the enhancement of the level of interpretation of Mediterranean UNESCO cultural heritage and maximization of the commercialization of research results.

“iHERITAGE will show us the Mediterranean UNESCO heritage as we have never seen it. Dozens of new AR / VR / MR technological solutions will open the way for an unprecedented and democratic relationship with oral traditions, cultural heritage and archaeology, revealing forms, contexts and contents that would otherwise be invisible and reserved only for insiders.” – Lucio Tambuzzo, project creator –
