About the Workshop:

The aim of this workshop is to present the CrossCult project, a European Union H2020 funded project in Cultural Heritage sector and further promote its results to international audience. CrossCult aims at empowering reuse of digital cultural heritage in context-aware crosscuts of European history" and spurring a change in the way European citizens appraise History. It fosters the re-interpretation of what citizens may have learnt in the light of cross-border interconnections among pieces of cultural heritage, other citizens' viewpoints and physical venues. It seeks to increase retention, stimulate reflection and help citizens appreciate their common past and present in a more holistic manner. Technology and mobile apps will be used and a user-friendly and a cost-efficient tool for experience designers, museum experts and external stakeholders, will be developed.
