Introduction

The Demand TA will address ways in which VM can support the economic and social development of the CH sector by capitalizing on developments such as the multiplier effect of use of digital cultural resources in many fields, such as tourism, education, urban and environmental planning and development and revalorization.

TA5, together with WG 5.1 will analyze target areas and target sectors for Multimodal Virtual Museums. The guiding question is: Who has which interest in what kind of Virtual Multimodal Museum application. Firstly, a list of target areas and sectors will be created; then, the kind of interest in Virtual Multimodal Museums that exists or might exist in each area/sector will be investigated. As an outcome, a report about “The need and demand for Virtual Museums” will be published on the ViMM-platform together with the list of target areas and sectors. This list will grow over time and will have the following columns: “Name of area/sector”; “Short description of area/sector”; “Interest in Virtual Multimodal Museums”.

Scope and objectives

This working group focuses on the following aspects:

Firstly, we need to identify and define a Map of stakeholders, funding sources, sectors (e.g. tourism, education, smart cities) and current and new target audiences. This WG will also identify  issues in the state of the art concerning the lack of visitors to museums / sites,  activities and sites that compete against CH and misunderstandings in visitors after visit, etc. WG5.1 will also provide examples of success stories, corrective actions, failure cases,  small centers,  large institutions, EU-funded projects, private initiatives, profit and non-for-profit.
