State-of-the-art reports of concepts, approaches, standards, and technologies

This document will describe the review process employed for conducting the reviews under T7.1 and combine the six ‘state of the art’ reviews into an overall report.

Communication and dissemination strategy

The communication and dissemination strategy will establish the approach and methods of communicating with the project’s target groups and disseminating results. This document will establish the project’s key messages, identify target audiences and define tactics and products to be employed.

Inventory & characterisation report of funding opportunities

The report consists of an inventory of funding opportunities financing models tools and fundraising approaches available from the public and private finance sectors and also from some of the most important financial and public institutions at international European and national levels Specific attention will be paid for the sustainable and ethic social finance opportunitiesIn addition the report classifies the funding opportunities using the applicability requirements considering the foreseen environmental technologic economic social and institutional criteria underlying the value added of the selected options in terms of effectiveness value creation optimised opportunities and minimised risk discussed and approved by the target communities

Report on clustering activities

This document will report on the conducted clustering activities document the project mapping and will also include the joint white paper

CIPCast DSS modification and integration

This deliverable will describe the performed modifications to the CIPCast DSS the data inserted in the DSS and the procedures to prepare the use of the instruments for its adaptation in the pilot city test cases The integration of CIPCast with the ARCH disaster risk management framework will also be described and the subsequent way in which resilienceenhancing strategies could be evaluated by using the appropriate combination of the two tools and the use of synthetic scenarios

Requirements description

This document will describe the elicited and consolidated user needs and functional as well as non-functional stakeholder requirements from T7.4 and T3.4.5. Due to the agile nature of the co-creation process, new requirements might emerge during the project lifetime. Therefore, D7.5 is a living document that will be updated whenever new requirements are identified.

Report on co-creating the information system

This deliverable will report on the cocreation activities conducted for the historic areas and hazard information management systems Specifically it will report on the conducted local workshops organised to share information obtained by survey campaigns and monitoring activities and to illustrate the functionalities of the information systems It will describe how the workshops were conducted which stakeholders were involved which results were gathered how the results were addressed and which lessons were learned as a result of the process

Mapping and characterisation of experiences and good practices

This document will cover a mapping and characterisation of existing experiences and good practices in Europe and internationally. In addition, it will include the definition of common metrics for experiences and good practices to establish their replicability.

Local partnerships & work plan for each pilot city

This report will summarise the results of the stakeholder mapping in each of the pilot cities and include an engagement plan for the project duration. In addition, Each of the pilot cities will develop a work plan for the local activities including timeframe and stakeholders to be involved as well as an overview on the co-creation activities.

Handbook on Heritage Asset Vulnerability

This handbook will describe the developed state indices quality parameters and damage functions and how to employ them for vulnerability assessments of historic areas It will contain amongst others descriptions of interrelation between heritage assets and the social and economic fabric the requirements for ensuring service continuity and the impacts that local economic crises might have on the fate of fragile territories

Digital Twin models for impact assessment

This report will describe the developed and adapted models and methods designed for the impact assessment based on heritage asset and Digital Twin models

ARCH disaster risk management framework

This document describes ARCH’s disaster risk management framework for assessing and improving the resilience of historic areas.

Report on co-creating the Impact and Risk Assessment

This deliverable will report on the cocreation activities conducted for the Impact and Risk Assessment and the results obtained For each of the four pilot cities it will include an exante assessment of the historic areas the identification of the analysed crisis scenarios the assessment of the potential damages and impacts on the heritage assets and the resulting exante assessment and the possible crisis evolution when specific strategies and tools identified in the project would have been deployed

Guideline on ARCH co-creation approach

This document will describe the co-creation framework of the project, including a definition of ‘co-creation’, rules for co-creation (e.g. regular contact, documentation of correspondence / results), frequently encountered obstacles and potential options to address these, as well as employed monitoring techniques (if any).

Standardisation strategy & conducted activities

This document lists the identified potential gaps in the existing standards repository and assesses the project results regarding potential transformation into standards It includes a strategy on how to proceed in terms of standardisation within this project and a review of a workshop conducted with projects funded by the same call assessing the outcomes regarding the integration of further potential tools for the envisaged standardsIn addition this document gives an overview of the conducted standardisation activities the involvement with technical committees the draft CEN Workshop Agreements and the next steps that have to be taken

Hazard models for impact assessment

This report will describe the developed and adapted models and methods designed for the impact assessment based on environmental and heritage asset data

IoT Platform for Digital Twin

This report will describe the architecture of the IoT Platform and how to deliver IoT sensing data to the management system And the protocol and data format of captured data by IoT sensors will be provided

Interface specification and system architecture

This document describes the overall system architecture and definitions of interfaces between the overall system and system components from WPs 4 5 and 6

Assessment of long-term implementation options

Contains a report describing the methodology followed in T62 regarding assessment of the longterm implementation options according to different performance criteria Sustainability resilient economy social and institutional criteria The report will also include the results from the pilot city case studies

Visual identity, promotional pack, and Website

The visual identity and promotional pack will provide guidance on use of the project’s colours, logos, funding acknowledgement and placement of EU emblem in project outputs, and will provide boilerplate text for communicating the project and its aims for a variety of target groups. The website deliverable document will demonstrate the first version of the ARCH website and will justify the relevant design decisions, as well as detailing future plans for the website’s further development as project results become available.
