GETTING ADVICE FROM THE BEST IN THE FIELD

InvisibleStudio is more than a company: it is a small research center.

Since the beginning of our careers in the digital museum field in the 90s we have teamed up with distinguished academics in order to write scientific papers and discuss and disseminate the best practices in order to help the advancement of the whole museum and culture sector.

Our advisory committee is comprised of academics internationally recognized in the digital museum research.

New names will be added soon.
