MRI colleagues, researcher Andrea Tönkő and project coordinator Hanna Szemző participated in the Resilient Cultural Heritage and Communities in Europe conference on 10-11 May 2018, where they outlined the main goals of “OpenHeritage: Organizing, Promoting and Enabling Heritage Re-use through Inclusion,
Technology, Access, Governance, and Empowerment”, a 4-year Horizon2020 project to be launched in June 2018.
OpenHeritage concentrates a consortium of 16 partners: universities, SMEs, think tanks and NGOs, is led by Metropolitan Research Institute. The project will aim at creating a sustainable management model of heritage assets, working with an open definition of heritage, and involving sites that are not listed or incorporated into the official heritage discourse. Instead, the consortium chose to focus on buildings, complexes, and spaces which lie outside traditional and centrally located heritage spaces, and rather have a symbolic or practical significance for local and trans-local communities. Through community and stakeholder involvement, resource integration and territorial embeddedness, OpenHeritage will select, survey and analyse peripheral, often neglected heritage sites spread over sixteen Observatory Cases and six Cooperative Heritage Labs in 10 European countries.
