Museology and cultural engineering laboratory (LAMIC)

Université Laval, Québec, Québec
What the facility does

Use of digital technologies in a museum context, with a focus on the transmission of culture and heritage.

Areas of expertise

LAMIC is a laboratory specializing in experimental museology, based on information and communications technology (ICT). It is a telecollaboration platform that explores relationships between objects, visitors and space, in a museum context. LAMIC is intended as a hub of reflection and experimental research that helps museums redefine their practices by allowing them to make more enlightened choices of state-of-the-art technological equipment and providing them with the necessary tools to create dynamic museum experiences better adapted and adaptable to the public. A variable-geometry research team uses LAMIC’s infrastructure to explore ways to conserve and highlight heritage. LAMIC is a partner in a number of projects requiring the use of digital technologies for cultural and heritage purposes.
