The goal of the project is to enhance innovation, cooperation and regional cultural promotion in and by 8 leading regional museums in the border area (in the context of this application, the St. Geldersch Landschap en Kasteelen is considered to be a museum; 7 of its castles are open to vistors).

The museums will explain the common history of the border region using cross-border themes such as “the Romans”, “Dukes and Counts” and “Worldwar II”. The museums want to enhance their profile with young people. They will therefore be supported by IT-experts and students from 2 colleges in digitally opening up their collections and objects through gamification, geocaching, augmented reality and storytelling. The purpose is to enhance the attractiveness of the region and to promote visiting the areas on both sides of the border.
