About the project

Preservation and Recovery of Intangible Cultural Heritage

Many of the central European cultural phenomena listed under the national or UNESCO heritage lack a sustainable approach to their preservation and management. Intangible cultural heritage like traditions are even more in danger to be lost if not carefully preserved. CULTURECOVERY focuses on eco-museums that have great potential for preserving the identity of places and people. The project aims at improving capacities of eco-museum managers and operators by promoting strategies and action plans for preservation and valorisation of immaterial cultural heritage. It will develop innovative solutions for a wider audience.

The project will encourage close cooperation between the public and private sector when developing new tools. The partnership will use and test bottom-up approach, tackle issues in an integrated and interdisciplinary way, and focus on the involvement of local communities.
