Horizon 2020 Projekt ReInHerit
Redefining the Future of Cultural Heritage, through a disruptive model of sustainability
The Horizon 2020 project "ReInHerit" focuses on current challenges in the heritage sector across Europe (e.g. climate protection and sustainability, digital transformation and digital engagement, integrated experiences across sites and museums) and aims to foster further communication and exchange opportunities between actors of the cultural heritage sector (especially museums, cultural heritage managers and policy experts, tourism industries, heritage audiences, and citizens) by developing solutions, guidelines and tools.
The overall goal of the project is to create a sustainable digital ecosystem for cultural heritage (the Digital Hub). The Digital Hub will connect cultural heritage institutions and sites across the EU, provide a place for all stakeholders to exchange, cooperate and communicate, provide useful tools and guidelines (e.g. on digital tools and methods, on management practices), and host digital exhibitions.
To achieve this goal, an international team consisting of 12 project partners from 7 EU countries, with the "Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation" as project lead partner, has joined forces. The Institute Centre for Information Modelling is also part of this international team and will be responsible for the development of the Digital Hub.
