JPI Cultural Heritage and Global Change

Basic Information

This HERITAGE PLUS Joint Call will be designed to fund excellent collaborative, transnational, interdisciplinary, innovative R&D projects focussed mainly on tangible cultural heritage research, while not excluding the interlinked aspects of intangible and digital heritage.

Aim of the joint call The Strategic Research Agenda for the JPICH recognises that different types of heritage cannot be seen as separate entities and so any investigation of tangible heritage through projects funded through this call should also explore its intangible and digital aspects. An important outcome of the HERITAGE PLUS Call will be maximising the impact and added value of the research undertaken to non-academic stakeholders such as policy makers but in particular to NGOs and business, including SMEs. The intention is to 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.
