The INCEPTION research project covers a total duration of 4 years (48 months). The project is organized in 8 inter-dependent work packages. One work package for mapping users demands (WP1), one work package for technology development/capturing and acquisition protocol (WP2), two work packages for research and technology development/data processing (WP3-4), three work package for deployment/user-oriented applications (WP5-6-7) and finally one work package for project management and scientific coordination (WP8).
•WP1 User requirements on cultural heritage knowledge
•WP2 3D data acquisition and hardware enhancement
•WP3 BIM semantic modelling and software applications for Heritage usability
•WP4 INCEPTION platform for sharing Heritage BIM models
•WP5 Use cases and demonstrations
•WP6 Deployment of 3D models in user applications
•WP7 Education, knowledge dissemination and exploitation
•WP8 Project and scientific management
The INCEPTION project is geared towards fulfilling the priorities of the work programme, especially: Accessing, Understanding, and Strengthening European identity through its rich cultural heritage.
  • Accessing European cultural heritage for both specialists and citizens at large, against a low cost. INCEPTION introduces replicable methods for 3D digital reconstruction across Europe, and enhances the precision and efficiency of 3D scanning / data acquisition equipment.
  • Understanding European cultural heritage more accurately as INCEPTION semantically enriches 3D models and digital surrogates (Virtual + Augmented Reality), and allows everyone to add rich diversity of contexts and interpretations to the 3D digital models through interactive, story-telling and wiki-oriented approaches using user mobile devices. On top of this, INCEPTION has an ambition to strongly support the development of a pan-European approach to data usage for better decision making related to preventive interventions and for supporting of site management and sustainable exploitation of assets.
  • Strengthening European identity on multiple levels at the widest scale as INCEPTION establishes 3D digital model-based documentation of cultural heritage that will be disseminated online as well as through on-site and off-site demonstrations by educational, cultural and governmental institutions, which are directly engaged in the INCEPTION Stakeholder Panel.
