Coordination action in support of the implementation of a Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) on Cultural Heritage and Global Change : a new challenge for Europe


Europe’s cultural heritage is the world’s most diverse and rich patrimony attracting millions of visitors every year to monuments, historical city centres, archaeological sites and museums. Moreover, heritage is an important component of individual and collective identity. In both its tangible, intangible and digital forms, it contributes to the cohesion of the European Union and plays a fundamental role in European integration by creating relations among citizens.
The JPI on Cultural Heritage and Global Change: a new Challenge for Europe has recently defined a common vision which needs to be translated into a Strategic Research Agenda.
A CA is needed to allow Member States and Associated Countries to implement the Joint Programming for jointly providing areas where public research programmes can respond to major societal challenges. This, in turn, will need to be implemented under an adequate management structure, with associated activities to both disseminate the objectives and initial achievements, and provide an evaluation framework for addressing its impact.
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.
