“Historic Cities & ICT: Which building will you save first?”
Nicosia, Monday 22nd of October 2018, 10:00 am
Cyprus University of Technology organizes a one-day Workshop on innovative use of ICT (Information Communication and Technology) on preserving, protecting and promoting Cultural Heritage in Historic Cities. The Workshop will take place in Nicosia at 22nd of October 2018 (Monday) between 10:30 and 16:30, in Leventis Gallery. The workshop is divided in two parts: first part (10:30 to 13:30) will include scientific presentations to the participants under the theme of ICT & Cultural Heritage, focusing on specific thematic areas. The second part (14:30 to 16:30) is a hands-on workshop where all the participants will be engaged in a decision-making tool for historic cities.
The Workshop is part of project IRC-HERMES, funded by Interreg Balkan- Mediterranean. IRC-HERMES addresses the rescue, promotion and development of cultural heritage. It focuses on preventing the danger of collapse by means of management and prevention algorithms for historic buildings. A digital cultural heritage management system, like HERMeS has been already tested and recognized for its innovation at European level. It will be updated and expanded, following research, documentation and implementation, for the four pilot regions Corfu, Samos Ohrid and Gjirocaster. The potential to apply it in other regions/settlements will be assessed. Management of endangered cultural heritage is one of the Objectives of the INTERREG BALKAN-MED Program and specifically of Investment Priority 6c “Conserving, protecting, promoting and developing natural and cultural heritage”.
The Workshop is scheduled in the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 and as a side event of the 5th Anniversary Conference of the 7 Most Endangered programme and Capacity Building Days on Endangered Heritage which will take place on 22-24 October in Nicosia (Cyprus), organized by EUROPA NOSTRA.
