The Project „BalticMuseums 2.0“


In the BalticMuseums 2.0 project, a consortium of six partners from Germany, Poland, Lithuania and Russia  are jointly developing innovative technical information and communication tools for oceanographic museums. One result from this project is the collaboration in designing and running this joint multi-lingual online platform.


The idea for tighter cooperation between oceanographic museums in the Baltic Sea Region was generated to solve the technical challenges faced by all partners through the use of information tools. The focus is on exploiting the diverse languages of the partners in order to benefit international tourists.


In addition to the development of the website, the consortium has realised a joint online ticketing system. Furthermore, developments for a future-oriented visitor guidance and information system have been undertaken. These so-called eGuides have the potential to level up the museums’ exhibitions, especially for international visitors, by offering tours in several languages. Upon completion of the project the attractiveness of the museums will have been increased.


As the partner museums are a main tourist attraction in their respective regions, the project will contribute to each region’s economic development.


The project is estimated to run for three years starting in October 2008. The European co-financing of almost one million Euros was granted in July 2008.

Co-operation continues: BalticMuseums 2.0 Plus


Since december 2010 the co-operation of the museums and their scientific partners continues with the new project BalticMuseums 2.0 Plus. In the coming three years an electronic guidance system, a so-called eGuide, shall be implemented in the participating museums. Tailor-made tours for e.g. parents with kids make the museum visit an excellent adventure. The content and material will be jointly developed by the partner museums in several languages, thus being able to offer more guided tours in foreign languages.

The South Baltic Programme


In formal terms, the South Baltic Programme is the so-called multilateral cross-border cooperation programme set-up to foster collaboration in the southern Baltic Sea Region. In practical terms, the South Baltic Programme covers a completely new regional area where cross-border cooperation structures have yet to be launched at full scale. The overall objective of the South Baltic Cross- border Cooperation Programme 2007 – 2013 is to strengthen the sustainable development of the South Baltic region through joint actions to increase its competitiveness and enhance integration among people and institutions.

The BalticMuseums 2.0 project was approved in the first call of the programme in 2008.
