ISAAC logoIntegrated e-Services for Advanced Access to Heritage in Cultural Tourist Destinations

The Integrated e-Services for Advanced Access to Heritage in Cultural Tourist Destinations (ISAAC) project aimed to promote the diversity and wealth of European cultural heritage by increasing the interest of tourists and citizens in visiting and experiencing European cultural tourist destinations and their riches, in both virtual and real terms. The project was co-funded by the European Union through the IST programme under FP6.

The project specifically developed a novel user-friendly and user-relevant Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Platform, which offers rich and integrated electronic services and contents for the benefit of different categories of users such as tourists, local residents, decision-makers and managers before, during and after a real visit of cultural sites and objects in urban tourist destinations.
