Program of cross-border cooperation Czech Republic - Bavaria Cíl EÚS 2014 – 2020

Museum Uploaded – Digital technology for cross-border interactive cooperation of museums 

Project partners: Stadt Deggendorf, Prácheňské muzeum in Pisek, Technische Hochschule Deggendorf

Schedule: 1. 9. 2017 – 31. 8. 2020

Project budget: 1 830 330,39 EUR

The aim of the project is to create interdisciplinary, visitor-oriented, barrier-free and multimedia presentations of preserved cultural heritage in mutual cooperation of partners and at the same time to develop new applied technologies in the field of museology and archiving in the long run.

The leading partner of the project is the Municipal Museum in Deggendorf (Stadt Deggendorf - Stadtmuseum), other partners are the Prácheň Museum in Písek and the Technical University in Deggendorf. The project aims to innovate existing and develop completely new technologies, which will then be used for the first time in the field of museums. The Technical University in Deggendorf (Campus Freyung) and the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (Department of Computer Science and Institute of Archival Science and PVH) are cooperating in the development of a new digital exhibition system. The museums in Deggendorf and Písek serve as model case studies. During the joint scientific work of both museums, topics and materials that touch on cultural heritage in a cross-border context will be collected and processed with the help of museum-didactic methods using digital strategies. Museums will function here as laboratories, in which various development approaches of universities to the presentation and visualization of museum materials are discussed together, their suitability for use is verified and feedback is captured. The peculiarity of this concept from the perspective of information technology and media production is the interconnection of digital media using modern server and Internet technologies, both for the needs of permanent exhibitions and for new forms of presentation with the aim of creating spatial and temporal data. An important part of this technical solution is the creation of a central data storage system that meets the requirements for long-term archiving of electronic data. This sustainable system will ensure continuous visualization of data and metadata in museum presentations and will enable the exchange of data with other institutions. These systems will be implemented in museums for the purpose of presenting information: the Deggendorf City Museum, one of the largest exhibition houses in Lower Bavaria, and the Prácheň Museum in Písek, a European museum awarded European prizes. and their equipment with modern technologies
