At the beginning of this year NOUS launched a survey to find out how museums around the world deal with the topics of Apps, multimedia guides and social media. They will present the outcomes and discuss strategies for mobile immersion and avoiding “one app mobile isolation.” NOUS speaks about their most successful projects and how they were planned and executed. Projects such as the European Parliament, the Mercedes Benz Museum, Hangar-7 and others.

Focusing on the current circumstances of institutions in high demand for more content, intelligent interactions and integration with museum databases, combining them to one mobile solution. NOUS expands on the ideas of preparing and combining; app., guides, web, archive interfaces and social networking into one global more sustainable strategy for the future.
