This call for proposals aims at funding excellent collaborative, transnational, interdisciplinary, innovative R&D projects focused mainly on tangible cultural heritage research, while not excluding the interlinked aspects of intangible and digital heritage. This call shall help narrow the gap between cultural heritage research and the implementation of the resulting knowledge to solve problems relating to the assessment, protection and management of cultural heritage.

Priorities and funded actions:

– Maximise the value of research outcomes by promoting their transfer to individuals and organisations outside the immediate research community
– Support a range of interactions and partnerships between cultural heritage researchers and a variety of user communities
– Generate new and exciting knowledge exchange opportunities, foster entrepreneurial talent, and stimulate innovation so as to improving the competitiveness, productivity, and performance of businesses and commercial enterprises

This call focuses on the following research topics
– “Safeguarding tangible cultural heritage and its associated intangible expressions” : develop instruments to monitor and safeguard all forms of heritage, investigate changes that may affect heritage
– “Sustainable strategies for protecting and managing cultural heritage” : investigate how heritage is perceived by people, examine how interactions with heritage users may influence its management
– “Use and re-use of all kinds of cultural heritage” : examine how physical heritage may be affected by societal and environmental changes in the surrounding environment, explore issues regarding access to heritage and the conflict between the need to protect heritage and the need to maintain it open for users

Among financed actions
– Transnational, collaborative R&D Projects
– Networking
– Questions
