The Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change: a new challenge for Europe
Protection of cultural heritage in the face of global change is thus becoming a major concern for decision-makers, stakeholders and citizens in Europe. Research into strategies, methodologies and tools is needed to safeguard cultural heritage against continuous decay. Before irreversible damage is done, concerted actions, based on sound science, are needed to protect, strengthen and adapt Europe’s unique cultural patrimony.
A concerted research action is needed to allow Member States to maximise and exploit at best their research efforts. Joint Programming provides a framework within which Member States address jointly areas where public research programmes can respond to major societal challenges.
JHEP Coordination action in support of the implementation of a Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) on Cultural Heritage and Global Change : a new challenge for Europe “
JHEP intends to structure and support this JPI to implement the action programme for the area of research on cultural heritage in a changing world.
The main objectives of JHEP are therefore:
- Providing necessary administrative and logistical support to the meetings of the Governing Board, Executive Board, Scientific Committee and Advisory Board required for the development and implementation of the SRA and Action Programme;
- definition of strategic and scientific priorities to develop the scientific research agenda;
- implementation of joint and coordinated research activities;
- extension of the partnership, cooperation at global levels and with international and NG organizations;
- evaluation and monitoring of the joint activities;
- engagement of stakeholders through a communication plan to ensure the translation of research outputs into practice and policy.
