V-MUST Digital Heritage Workshop in Falmouth, UK

V-Must Banner (small)This week De Montfort University’s Digital Building Heritage Group PhD student Asem Al Bunni is attending V-MUST 2013, the 2nd International Virtual Heritage School at AIR Studio, Falmouth University. One of twenty international applicants competitively selected to attend this prestigious week long training workshop Asem is getting to grips with a range of advanced heritage visualisation and documentation technologies including unmanned aerial vehicles for remote sensing. V-MUST (Virtual Museum Transnational Network) is a Network of Excellence, funded by the European FP7 Network of Excellence (Grant Agreement 270404) which is focused on Virtual Museums. It aims to provide the heritage sector with the tools and support to develop Virtual Museums that are educational, enjoyable, long-lasting and easy to maintain. V-MUST.NET, coordinated by CNR has 18 participating partners, coming from 13 different Countries and more than 100 Associated Members and the project is running over 4 years (1st of February 2011 – 31st of January 2015). Designed for early career professionals and researchers with a strong interest in cultural heritage and/or virtual museum digitisation and communication the 2nd International Virtual Heritage School at Falmouth offers an exciting programme of lectures and hands-on sessions by leading experts in the field of cultural heritage and virtual museums and combines these with field trips and participant led case study development. Organised by V-MUST.NET and King’s College London in collaboration with AIR Studio, Falmouth University this kind of event is vital in developing the skills of Early Career Researchers (ECR’s) who want to go on and work in Digital Heritage. We are delighted that Asem is benefitting from this EU programme and the new possibilities it will bring to his doctoral research and to the DBHG at DMU. V-MUST http://www.v-must.net/
