EU awards ICT prize to Italian SMartART project

The SMartART project developed by the Communications and Images Laboratory of the University of Florence has been selected as one of the winners of the European Union’s @diversity Awards, which recognise outstanding examples of ICT innovation to promote culture. SMartART enables museums and other cultural spaces to provide information to audiences via an image rather than a code. Content is detected through software designed for camera-equipped smartphones.

The project won the ‘Make Culture’ category of the inaugural @diversity Awards and will now receive tailored professional coaching on developing a business plan, legal issues, access to finance, marketing and networking.
