Terra Mosana is a collaboration between municipalities, heritage sites, museums, universities and citizens to reinforce the attractiveness of tourism and shared identity in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine through the digital exploitation of cultural heritage. Citizens and tourists will experience Euregional heritage in 3D and on-site through virtual and augmented reality. In the long term, the network aims at developing a digital platform gathering digital copies of archaeological and heritage sites. The project runs from June 1, 2018 until November 30, 2021, and is funded by the EU through its European Regional Development Fund. More details can be found on the INTERREG EMR project website and the Terra Mosana website.
