MuseIT: Multisensory, User-centred, Shared cultural Experiences through Interactive Technologies

DURATION: 2022 - 2025

PROGRAMME: Horizon Europe


With the broader ambition of equality, democratization and social inclusion, The MuseIT project proposes technologies that facilitate and widen access to cultural assets, and helps preserve and safeguard cultural heritage in an inclusive way.

The MuseIT project aims to co-design, develop, and co-evaluate a multisensory, user-centred platform for enriched engagement with cultural assets with inclusion and equal opportunity for all as core principles. The MuseIT innovation is rooted in multisensory representations of cultural heritage which extend beyond the visual and auditory senses.

Participatory co-design activities will be integral to enable users with disabilities to be involved in decisions and designs that will affect their lives.

Enriched experiences of cultural assets created by MuseIT will not be limited to this group and is likely to enhance the level of participation and enjoyment for all people.

Impacts are likely to include the democratization of cultural asset experiences, and tangible growth in creative and cultural industries.
