The OpenHeritage project identifies and tests the best practices of adaptive heritage re-use in Europe. Drawing on the observations and results, the project will develop inclusive governance and management models for marginalized heritage sites and a supportive toolbox to ensure their transferability.

What will OpenHeritage offer?
  • Workshops and Training Programmes – for local administrations and practitioners
  • Networking Events – opportunities to exchange with city representatives, civil society organisations, investors and researchers about the adaptive re-use of historic sites
  • an Online Database of current adaptive heritage re-use policies in Europe – for those looking for more knowledge and practical guidance
  • Heritage Points – online platforms presenting six Cooperative Heritage Labs established in Berlin, Lisbon, Pomáz, Rome, Sunderland and Warsaw
