SHARE - Sustainable approach to cultural heritage for the urban area requalification of Europe

Interreg Europe cooperation project - Share

Cultural heritage is a focus of pride and identity for citizens as well as an important driver of tourism. The Interreg Europe project SHARE studies sustainable ways to improve the protection, promotion, accessibility and development of urban cultural heritage sites across Europe. The project includes partners from Spain, Romania, Sweden, UK, Hungary and Croatia, with Sviluppumbria as lead partner.

In the active phase of the project, which ended on 31 December 2018, the partners took part in research activities, focus groups with local stakeholders, visits to monuments and destinations illustrating different aspects of cultural heritage management, and exchanges of good regional practices. The objective of the learning activities is the Local Action Plan, prepared by each partner, which presents suggestions for improving the implementation of a regional policy, which in Umbria is the ERDF ROP 2014-2020, Axis 6: Sustainable Urban Development.

View the Action Plan for Umbria and other partner territories.

The monitoring phase of the SHARE project, which started in 2019, aims to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the suggested improvements. In 2020, an event will be organised in Perugia to present the overall results of the project to the public.

SHARE's financing (Interreg Europe - ERDF) is 1,409,076.00 Euros
