A Digital Museum is a new model of communication-system that aims at creating a personalized, immersive interactive way to enhance our understanding of the world around us. The term “Digital Museum” is a “short-cut” that comprehends various types of digital creations. This network aims to bring three domains together that can improve Virtual Museums. These domains are: Museums-practice, Research & Development and Small and Medium Enterprises (SME's).

This meetup is part of the Virtual Museum Transnational Network which is a new European Network of Excellence dedicated to Virtual Museums. See http://v-must.net/

This project has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7 2007/2013) under the Grant Agreement 270404.

meSch: Material EncounterS with digital cultural Heritage, is exploring do-it-yourself tangible interactives at heritage sites.
Digital heritage
A wealth of digital repositories related to cultural heritage have been created and made available in the last few years. meSch wants to make innovative use of these by creating a tool for creating adaptive smart exhibits.
Tangible interaction
The core problem underlying all digital artefacts is the loss of materiality. meSch wants to put the physical back in the centre of cultural heritage experience.
In meSch curators, artists and designers will work together to do-it-yourself technology for creating adaptive smart exhibits.
