On 14 October, Olaf Sperwer, senior technology consultant and Head of Digital at VRmed Ltd, facilitated a much-appreciated NEMO webinar and introduction to how museums can start working with digital and immersive technologies.

The pandemic has showed museums the many benefits of digital and immersive technologies such as virtual- and augmented reality. However, there is a need for up-skilling and training of museums professionals on how to use the new technologies. This webinar gives an overview of post-pandemic transformation concepts where digital and immersive technologies can be offered as new services to engage and share experiences with visitors and create new alternative funding sources. Based on case studies, the participants will learn about possibilities and limits of digital and immersive technologies. They webinar will also discuss costs and monetarisation models.
