Your best support to the process of digitalization
The Inception Spin-off strategic goal is to offer support to the process of digitization, management, dissemination, enhancement of cultural heritage and built heritage, through products and services using BIM-based technologies and semantic-web platforms. It is aimed at public and private organizations that manage these processes at different levels, as well as other users such as researchers, students, tourists, technicians, etc. The focus on workflows and user experience is aimed at reducing work-related stress and technical stress resulting from the use of new IT tools and related to the demand for ever-growing skills. The mission of Inception Spin-off is to allow access to these technologies by users with different levels of competence, training and age.
