Project summary del proyecto

The preservation of buildings of historical and cultural value in south-west Europe is currently not a regular organised activity; it only occurs when serious problems arise. In order to face this urgent situation, HeritageCARE aims to implement a management system for the preventive preservation of the historical and cultural heritage based on a series of services provided by a nonprofit organisation created in Spain, France, and Portugal. The project will be the first joint strategy of preventive heritage preservation in south-west Europe.

This methodology will be tested on 60 pilot structures from Sudoe territory soon.
