The University of Surrey and augmented reality app Smartify plan to support arts and heritage organisations after winning a grant from the Economic and Social Research Council.
The Impact Acceleration Account grant will be used to deliver workshops on using augmented technology to increase engagement with arts and heritage.
Professor Caroline Scarles from the University of Surrey will co-lead the project. She says it will allow visitors to explore more exhibits and collections online whilst on-site visits remain restricted.
“It will also open opportunities in a post-Covid climate for developing new ways of engaging visitors outside the traditional in-person visit," she added.
