Synergies and cross-fertilizing collaboration between FINCH and other initiatives – addressed to built cultural heritage – are ongoing and providing tangible results!
The latest activities related to these exchanges – involving both FINCH Kindred Projects and initiatives not included in that group - materialized in the following actions:
- co-organisation of a session hosted during the 18th edition of the “European Weeks of Regions and Cities” with two Interreg Europe co-funded projects: Share and Innocastle. The collaboration among the three projects originated from a previous on-line meeting organised by Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform dedicated to “Sustainable cultural tourism as an opportunity for local development” and resulted in “Resilient Heritage, Cohesive Society” session that will be included in the second week of this year's #EURegionsWeek, dedicated to the thematic cluster "Cohesion and Cooperation" and taking place from 12th to 16th October 2020
- formal collaboration with Horizon 2020 project “CLIC – Circular models Leveraging Investments in Cultural heritage adaptive reuse” to support the dissemination and participation to the CLIC Start Up Competition; this Competition is supporting on the ground and rewarding the most talented innovators and promising startups working in the field of cultural heritage adaptive reuse inspired to the circular economy principles. As an additional information, deadline submission for project proposal has just been extended to the 6th November 2020!
- sharing of FINCH’s lessons learnt and output with the Interreg Central Europe project “For Heritage - Excellence for integrated heritage management in central Europe” with particular reference to the deliverable “Living Document on financial instruments and regulatory framework for partnership with the private sector” elaborated by FINCH Advisory Partner. This collaboration - based on projects capitalization of existing tools from previously funded EU-projects and relevant experiences - supported the development of a new ForHeritage document on the topic of financial instruments, in order to increase the knowledge of public and private actors dealing with the management of the cultural heritage.
