Digital Innovation of Cultural Heritage Projects

In 2019, the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology co-funded digital innovation activities for cultural heritage in the framework of the Call for Proposals for Competence Development of Leading Tourist Destinations and Development of the Tourist Offer in Leading Tourist Destinations in 2020 and 2021, which stimulated more than 30 destination (local and regional) projects combining cultural heritage interpretation, the development of tourism products and digital technologies. The call for proposals co-funded more than 110 3D models of cultural heritage listed in the Register of Immovable Cultural Heritage, which were also the subject of several videos, short documentaries and promotional films, 360-degree photographs of the interior and exterior, 360-degree video clips and computer-generated graphics. For some of the units, floor plans were surveyed and drawn, witness statements were recorded and numerous archival materials were collected. This portal is dedicated to presenting these results.

Prior to the start of the activities, all participating organisations attended training sessions to learn about digital and development processes, the need to protect cultural heritage and the principles of interpretation. At this occasion, the Handbook on Digital Innovation of Cultural Heritage was published.

The Ministry of Economic Development and Technology in 2021 received the European Cultural Tourism Network Award for the initiative (European Cultural Tourism Network). Some results were also presented in the Slovenian Pavilion at EXPO 2020 in Dubai.
