TD COST Action TD1406
Innovation in Intelligent Management of Heritage Buildings (i2MHB)
Action duration: June 1, 2015 – April 30, 2019
The objective of this Action is to create a pan-European open network, to promote synergies between Heritage Sciences specialists, industrial stakeholders and research/education players, to achieve a unified common understanding and operation in the Heritage Buildings domain, integrating multidisciplinary expertise, technology and know-how through a novel and independent global framework.
RESCULT is a research project that aims to enhance the capability of Civil Protection (CP) to prevent and mitigate impacts of disasters on sites of Cultural Heritage (CH). This will be done through the realization of an integrated European Interoperable Database (EID) for CH, designed to provide a unique framework for CP, national Ministries of CH, the European Union (EU), local authorities. Moreover, RESCULT will provide a disaster risk reduction strategy identifying tailored actions and investments to improve both prevention and resilience capacities.
Specifically, RESCULT is working on the following three overall objectives:
- Improvement of the Disaster Risk Reduction strategy (for prevention and resilience), according to the principles of Sendai Framework.
- Increase cooperation and interoperability between EU member states for the sake of protecting Cultural Heritage (information sharing, interoperable protocols, best practices dissemination, alignment with EU policies/standards
- Enhancement of the capability of Civil Protection Bodies to understand/prevent/mitigate disasters impacts on Cultural Heritage
