Project Description


The main objective of PRESERVE is to contribute to an improved effectiveness of regional development policies, specifically of regional polices considering cultural heritage as an endogenous factor of economic development and supporting sustainable tourism. Based on commonly defined methodologies, the partners will exchange best practices in the field, mainly through the means of on-site peer reviews and exchange seminars.

The peer review-instrument encourages a true mutual learning process in a European-wide context, based on exchanging and sharing among people working in the same field and under similar framework conditions (here regional administrations).

The project activities will also lead to policy recommendations and holistic regional action plans that reconcile ambitions for modernisation and increased competitiveness with issues of sustainability and preservation of cultural heritage.


(1) to foster exchange of experience and improve capacities and knowledge of local and regional stakeholders

(2) to identify and share best practices

(3) to improve local and regional policies

A strong emphasis is, furthermore, placed on capturing and disseminating the collected experiences and know-how beyond the initial project network while also allowing a wide transfer of the methods and instruments used to identify best practices and to draw conclusions for regional policies from them.
