Are you an expert within the EU who is engaged in facilitating Adaptive Heritage Reuse (AHR) policies, programmes and practices? Would you like to better understand how AHR can be used as a tool? Do you see a need of integrating AHR in a wider set of EU policies and strategies?

If so, then you must check out our Policy Brief #04 entitled “A roadmap for the EU and Europe: Integrating adaptive heritage reuse in wider EU policies, programmes and practices”. It presents the main trends as well as challenges for AHR in the European context and offers concrete recommendations on how to embed AHR in different EU policies and strategies around the following four themes: greener, smarter, integrated and locally-led.

The other newly released Policy Brief #05 with the title “Regional integration of the adaptive heritage reuse projects: Strengthening sustainable local development” is dedicated to policy makers, heritage officers, and planners at local and regional levels of government, to help them navigate the diverse landscape of AHR projects and find models of regional integration that are the most suitable for their contexts. The Brief includes an analysis of four models that shed light on different ways of integrating AHR practices into a larger territorial framework and are based on the stakeholder roles and interests in the AHR process. Each model is illustrated by a concrete example from the OpenHeritage research work.

These two Briefs close the series of five OpenHeritage Policy Briefs. Would you like to get access to all Briefs with a single click? You can now download the Policy Brief Package here. Enjoy!
