Although tourism is a major engine of economic growth, it also creates a burden hard to manage, and has a great impact on the conservation of the heritage.
HERIT-DATA project aims to reduce the impact of tourism activities on cultural heritage, by taking advantage of technology and data exploitation.
The project will focus especially on old towns and sites of particular archaeological and cultural interest, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
HERIT-DATA partners will develop, test and transfer a series of tools to collect, generate, integrate, analyse information and transform it into behaviour changes.
The results will also contribute to improve decision-making processes run by public administration & tourism or heritage managing bodies.
The project started in April 2018 and will last until March 2022.
