Project Name: Sustainable Historic Environments hoListic reconstruction through Technological Enhancement and community based Resilience


SHELTER aims at developing a data-driven and community-based knowledge framework (Operational Knowledge Framework)  that will bring together the scientific community and heritage managers with the objective of increasing resilience, reducing vulnerability and promoting better and safer reconstruction in historic areas.

The Operative Knowledge Framework is a conservation-friendly, data-driven and community-based methodology to generate resilience and improve the reconstruction of historic areas in the face of climate change and hazard events.

A resourceful platform for local authorities, urban planners, conservation practitioners, first responders, cultural heritage owners and managers to guide the Historic Areas in the transformation toward a more resilient, circular, smart and inclusive historic environment taking advantage of the window of opportunity that the awareness, adaptation and preparations against hazards provide.

With its high replication potential, SHELTER framework will include the following services, grouped under 3 main sets, and exploitable together as well as independently: Information models and databases; Services; Tools.

Reason for applying to services

Bringing further the initiated standardisation process activity.

Main Standardisation Interests
