AN ACTION FOR VIRTUAL MUSEUMS

Virtual Multimodal Museum (ViMM) is a high-visibility and participative Coordination and Support Action (CSA), funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme (CULT-COOP-8-2016). ViMM brings together Europe and the world’s leading public and private sector organisations working on Virtual Museums and in the wider sector of Digital Cultural Heritage, to support high quality policy development, decision making and the use of technical advances. The partner consortium (see below) is supported by an expert Advisory Group in building the ViMM Framework, involving decision-makers and expert practitioners in defining and resolving issues spread across 7 interlinked Thematic Areas (‘the 7 Ds’): Definitions - Directions - Documentation - Dimensions -Demand - Discovery - Decisions  

Major results will include:

  • A highly interactive and wide-reaching ViMM communication Platform which:
  •  Key events at policy and practitioner/ stakeholder levels and extensive use of social media
    •  A clearer, evidence-based view of the impact of Virtual Museums and Digital Cultural Heritage on society and the economy
    •  A Manifesto and Roadmap for Action to be validated at the final ViMM international conference in 2019.
