DECIPHER: Digital Environment for Cultural Interfaces; Promoting Heritage, Education and Research
IMMA is a partner in DECIPHER, a multimillion Euro online research project, supported by the European Union, to help people learn more about art collections in museums, galleries and other cultural institutions. The work will take three years (2011 – 2013) and will result in exciting new technology to enable cultural institutions and the public to present collections using narrative and story online. The research consortium is led by the DIT’s Digital Media Centre, and IMMA is joined by fellow partners: the National Gallery of Ireland, Open University (UK), SSL (UK), BUT (Czech Republic), and Alinari 24 ORE SpA (Italy).
