The idea of the project “LIVE, INTERACTIVE and VIRTUAL Environments for the museums of the lower Danube cross-border area between Romania and Bulgaria – LIVE” is to show that the modern ICT technologies can be used for the wider popularisation and the attraction of more tourists in the museums and the CBC area. Four museums will be involved in the project as beneficiaries. They will provide the grounds for the pilot installations of several different ICT systems. These systems will serve both current and future generations and will provide them with a more modern way to obtain the knowledge held and stored in the museums. The outcomes of the pilot installations and the experience obtained from the use of the systems will serve as a starting point for the developing and the execution of the “Path of the Danube museums” Strategy, which will aim at the multiplication of the project results and the attraction of more tourist in the cross-border area.

Programme outputs and results:

Programme outputs: The project is planned as a pilot initiative between the museums of the Lower Danube area and as such is aiming to achieve the development of a common environment for further cooperation, including the organisation of additional events, the attraction of more museums to the guidelines of the strategy and the multiplication of the results for other institutions. Based on this we can highlight several aspects for the sustainable use of the project results and outcomes.

The developed project web page will continue to be supported and maintained by the lead beneficiary and by all partners after the end of the project. All dissemination materials will also be distributed and presented in further events and at other meetings after the end of the project.

Programme results: The project will result in an increase of the tourist overnights in the CBC area by at least 2500 additional overnights. This will be achieved by the development and the integration of six new tourist products and services. These services will rely on the most modern ICT systems and solutions and will compensate the slow introduction of the modern technologies in the area of the preservation and the popularisation of the natural and the cultural heritage. We hope to provide to the mass public a complex solution for entertainment, which is both technologically advanced and provides interesting and educational experience. In this way we aim to bring back the people to the cultural institutions and the museums in the CBC zone.
