The CHESS User Group

In addition to the two museum partner members of the CHESS consortium, the Acropolis Museum and the Cite de l'espace, a broader community of practitioners related to the CHESS topics form our active, diverse and flexible User Group.
The purpose of the User Group is to act as an advisory board as well as an end-user constituency, helping in the identification of user needs, providing feedback on our design of scenarios and experiences and participating in various phases of the evaluation of the tools and prototypes developed by the project.
