For ASEMUS, Information and Communication Technoloyg (ITC in short) has been of crucial importance as means for Asian and European museums museums to cooperate with regards to collections. The conference that was organised at the National Museum of the Philippines, aimed to gather professionals to share knowledge and perspectives on the use of ICT in their institutions.
There were presentations on the technologies used for art preservation and for exhibition purposes. The Virtual Collection of Masterpieces (VCM) project was presented. The conference focused on the democratisation of knowledge and information and inspires museum professionals to make education on culture and heritage available beyond the galleries and classroom.
