One Minute was developed by the IT University of Copenhagen as part of the Horizon 2020 funded Gift project. Royal Pavilion & Museums was a partner in this project and hosted the first testing of the app in Brighton Museum in October 2019.

Our sincere thanks are due to the team at ITU Copenhagen for helping us set up our own version of the app, This development was also supported by the University of Brighton as part of the AHRC funded DigiPiCH project.
