CAMPANIA AND INNOVATION: TO BE IS GROWING ALONG WITH LIFI

 

 

The Project is co-funded by the European Union

With the objective of supporting the economic enhancement of innovation through the experimentation and implementation of innovative processes and solutions, both in product development and organization formulas, The Region of Campania will support the creation and consolidation of innovative startups with highly intensive applications through the contest “Campania Startup 2020”.

Among the entrepreneurial organizations supported by the Plan POR CAMPANIA FESR 2014-2020, we find To Be with the project “LiFi Zones Beni Culturali”, which aims at developing vertical solutions for the valorization of cultural assets through the LiFi technology.

The Project

The project “LiFi Zones Beni Culturali” wants to digitalize the tour experience within museums and cultural sites, to offer a more engaging and innovative experience and to attract a younger target. Moreover, it aims at developing interactive navigation services, particularly dedicated to people with disabilities, and increment the cultural assets' contribution to the nation's development. Finally, this project's objective is also to evaluate and develop new creative and innovative ideas, find ways to valorize our cultural and artistic heritage, and enhance the efficiency of the illumination system within the exhibition areas.

How are we going to reach these objectives? By creating a highly technological, meticulous, and customizable solution combining the digital and physical aspects and offering cultural institutions and their partners a comprehensive platform, easy to manage and that provides the right content at the right moment thanks to the highly accurate geolocation feature of Li-Fi.

Finality

Through our project we want to contribute to the digitalization of the world of cultural heritage, increase visits to the artistic sites and enrich the experience of the visitors. Starting from the core functionality of the Li-Fi Zone Platform, we will then add components designed for the specific sector, creating an App with its own unique logo. This logo will reflect the applications of Li-Fi in the Cultural Heritage sector.

Results

We have already been developing and experimenting Li-Fi solutions in the Cultural Heritage sector: Pompei's Archeological Park, Taranto's MArTA Museum, and Roma's Barracco Museum are just some examples. Since we wanted to make the LiFi Zones Beni Culturali Project a reality, offering an innovative tour experience, we are already working on new installations for other museums, and we are in a constant research and development process to offer an unprecedented solution.

We are working to offer green, digital, sustainable, and inclusive solutions to the world of cultural heritage.

Support Received

Thanks to the regional contribution of 263.137,70 euros, which was also co-funded by the European Union, our startup aims not only at offering an extremely efficient and scalable solution to the Cultural Heritage market, to leave a positive impact on the national territory and to guarantee a sustainable and innovative experience, but it also aims at strengthening and consolidating our structure by growing our team and establishing headquarters in Naples as well.

Work in progress

We are working to spread the light of innovation and we will keep you constantly updated.
