The objectives of the European "CrossCult: Empowering reuse of digital cultural heritage in context-aware crosscuts of European history" project are defined under three categories.
To develop pilot experiences gaining insight into the research question : “How the same facts may be interpreted differently from different social realities and by individuals with different cognitive/emotional profiles (meta-history)”?
To create a semantic knowledge base that interrelates an unrestricted set of (existing and future) digital cultural heritage resources and venues across different repositories, on the grounds of common properties or crosscutting, transversal concepts.
To assess the impact of state-of-the-art technologies of geolocalization, micro-augmentations of reality, social networking, content adaptation and personalization in mobile edutainment apps for smart cities and smart venues.
To automate the generation of narratives and the composition of digital cultural heritage resources in order to deliver meaningful interactive experiences to individuals and groups, taking into account their cognitive/emotional profiles, as well as temporal, spatial and miscellaneous features of context.
To design business models and plans for the exploitation of the project results in collaboration with a new network of researchers, scholars, ICT professionals and specialists of digital heritage.
