A spring of new ideas from the whole community of Heritage Research

Immagine home open-heritage is an independent online space open to the contribution of the whole community of Heritage Research, aiming to offer a set of multidisciplinary and multimedia conduits for the exchange of expertise and experience between people and institutions.
It is managed by the Social Platform created by the REACH project (RE-designing Access to Cultural Heritage for a wider participation in preservation, (re-)use and management of European culture) and it is intended to continue to function after the end of the project.

The website gathers links to data, documents, and project’s websites from the EU and from beyond Europe, to support the exchange of experiences and reflections among those sharing a common interest on the themes connected with Heritage Research.

The information is indexed by keywords, thematic categories and date of publication to facilitate user’s access.
