Valorisation of Monumental Heritage through Higher Education and Professional Training. Socio-economic study and analysis of National Policies on EU-MED-DEV countries and EC Directives

Objective

According to the definition of a Conservation Scientist given in the Bologna Document 2000 "A Conservation Scientist today can be defined as a scientist with a degree in one of the natural, physical and/or applied scientific disciplines and with further knowledge in conservation (ethics, history, cultural values, historical technologies, past and present conservation technologies and practice, specific scientific aspects, etc.), which enables him/her to contribute to the study and conservation of cultural heritage within an interdisciplinary team". Taking into account this definition and broadening it, including valorisation of monumental heritage and materials in cultural heritage, we can conclude that monumental heritage needs not only sciences and technology, but also humanities. Besides, social and economical aspects play an important role in the valorisation of monumental heritage process. It is a complex overall to implement it at university and professional/continuing education level. However, it is a necessity regarding conservation from an historical point of view, but also as potential resources and social development such as either cultural tourism or other industrial activities and services.

Our SSA's aim is to design capacity building through educational and training programmes with interdisciplinary and transversal issues, which include a large part of knowledge declared in Bologna Document. The programme design will be set up through an interdisciplinary group composed of 8 partners. EU (Spain, Portugal and France), West Balkans (Croatia) and MED - DEV countries (Morocco, Argentina and Mexico). Regarding the last countries (MED and DEV) a pilot programme will be implemented with a selective process. Additionally our SSA will be completed in two ways: with an analysis of National Policies ad EC Directives and the study about the socio-economic impact, of the Education another professional sectors in Employment.
