Circular models Leveraging Investments in Cultural heritage adaptive reuse

2017 - 2020

The CLIC project addresses significant challenges faced in cultural heritage and landscape adaptive reuse. It progresses the agenda on heritage-led local sustainable development by developing flexible, transparent, integrated and inclusive tools to manage the change of cultural landscapes. These tools are required to leverage the potential of cultural heritage for Europe.

The investment gap in cultural heritage and landscape regeneration will be addressed by CLIC through careful evaluation of all costs, of "complex values," and of the impacts of adaptive reuse including not only function(s) linked to tourism attractiveness, but also to well-being improvement, providing critical evidence of wealth, jobs, social, cultural, environmental and economic returns on investment. The overarching goal of the CLIC trans-disciplinary research project is to identify evaluation tools to test, implement, validate and share innovative "circular" financing, business and governance models for systemic adaptive reuse of cultural heritage and landscapes, demonstrating economic, social, and environmental convenience in terms of long-lasting economic, cultural and environmental wealth.
