The rich and diverse archaeological heritage of central Europe is in parts excellently developed and utilised. However, a broad share of this heritage, even of international importance, is very often hardly visible and tangible for the public and faces increasing menaces. The VirtualArch project unveils regional archaeological heritage – located underground or submerged, partly with global importance (UNESCO) – to local and regional stakeholders that are responsible for economic development. Project activities focus on the sustainable use and protection of non-visible and little known archaeological heritage by increasing the capacities of public actors and by introducing innovative visualisation approaches and methods (3D modeling, VR solutions, etc.).


The project, funded by Interreg Central Europe programme, has 10 full partners, 17 associate partners and 8 pilot areas to visualize and valorize. The project received funds from the Interreg Centraul Uerope programme (second call) under the priority "Natural and Cultural Heritage".
