Project Website

The 4CH project aims to set up the methodological, procedural, and organizational framework of a Competence Centre able to seamlessly work with a network of national, regional, and local Cultural Institutions, providing them with advice, support, and services focused on the preservation and conservation of historical monuments and sites.

The Competence Centre promotes a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to the conservation of CH and facilitates coordination between Heritage Agencies and CH Institutions across Europe and ongoing European initiatives.

By building an effective partnership, 4CH enables the take-up and transfer of research project results by the cultural heritage sector.

Services and tools to enable preservation and conservation using the latest, most effective technologies will be provided by:

Establishing a map of research and cutting-edge technologies related to preservation, conservation and sustainable promotion of monuments and sites, which will be regularly updated;

  • Reporting on the most valuable initiatives, experiences and best practices across Europe and internationally.
  • Defining training and upskilling programs for cultural heritage institutions, operators and professionals;
  • Developing consultancy, guidelines and protocols concerning the use of ICT with special attention to 3D technologies for management and their integration with monitoring technologies and sensors.
