As part of the Joint Programming Initiative in Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPICH) a workshop on Re-use and continued use of historic buildings, urban centres and landscapes is to be held at the University of Leicester. We would like to invite you to join the discussion and provide valuable insights which will feed into the development of a long-term strategy for the JPICH. 

The workshop will include presentations and discussion on the following research areas:

  • Conservation and Planning
  • Diversity and Communities
  • Immersive, multi-sensory engagement and virtual reality
  • Contested Heritage

Outputs from the workshop

The workshop showcased current research and was as a platform to generate discussion and thoughts about the long-term strategy of the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage. Since 2010, 20 EU participating countries and 8 observer countries have participated in 4 transnational joint funding calls with the most recent being on Digital Heritage and Heritage in Changing Environments. There are further calls planned for 2019 and 2020.

The workshop aims were:

  • To provide a platform to facilitate discussion about the long term strategy for the JPICH
  • To focus discussion around past, current and potential research into the Re-use and continued use of historic buildings, urban centres and landscapes
  • To bring together heritage researchers and stakeholders in the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage
  • To raise awareness of AHRC’s Heritage priority area.

The report below provides a summary of presentations and discussion from the workshop.
