RISE at ICOM Europe 

 
Last November, Dr Maria Shehade presented a paper entitled “The digital transformation of museums: challenges and future directions”, that was co-authored with Dr Theopisti Stylianou-Lambert, at the ICOM Europe Conference (International Committee of Museums), “Embracing the virtual: European museums respond to the digital challenge”, in Athens Greece.

The conference, that was organised jointly by ICOM Europe and ICOM Greece on the occasion of the 10-year anniversary of the new Acropolis Museum, aimed to address the opportunities and challenges arising from the implementation of new technologies and methods (e.g., 3D reconstructions, virtual and augmented reality, multimodal interactive systems) in the cultural sector.
