Description: Increasingly, citizens in developed countries have mobile access to various information sources. One application area that has attracted a lot of attention in recent years is tourism. Tourists by definition are on the move, i.e. mobile, and the features of advanced mobile ICT (e.g. personalization, localization, interactivity and context-awareness) suit admirably for delivering the sort of relevant and timely content that cultural heritage tourists demand. This proposal presents a project in which we focus on the potential of ICT to provide relevant services for cultural heritage tourists. The main goals of the project are the creation of a shared, one-stop digital repository of cultural artifacts and services, and the design and provision of mobile applications and services both citizens with cultural interests and for cultural heritage tourists in the cross border region.
