Contact: Andrea Scharnhorst Ph.D.

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

MuseIT 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 project is aimed at a wide range of people, groups concerned with disability, as well as cultural institutions. The technologies developed within the project aim to improve the inclusion and accessibility of cultural assets for all, with a particular focus on the needs of people with disabilities.

DANS is part of a consortium formed from 8 institutions and 2 partners under the coordination of the HOEGSKOLAN I BORAS. DANS is engaged in tasks of Data Management and preservation of complex digital objects, but will also learn about issues of inclusion and accessibility concerning our own digital collections.
