Section II: Object
Open microbusiness models for innovation in European family-owned heritage houses.
The objective of the action is to strengthen the capacity of private owners of heritage houses and equip them with innovative business models.
The preparatory action will map the existing business models used by family-owned heritage houses in the EU, compare them, identify and share best practices and potential innovations.
It will also quantify and qualify the economic value of family-owned heritage houses in the EU and identify their potential to contribute to various EU policies, including innovation, social inclusion, education, youth work and intercultural dialogue. Added value will derive from the synergies with current EU actions dedicated to cultural heritage (European Heritage Days, EU Prize for Cultural Heritage, European Heritage Label).
Finally the action will contribute to the objectives of the European Year of Cultural Heritage through dissemination and awareness raising of European value of heritage.
The objectives are:
1. to strengthen the capacity of private owners of heritage houses to sustain and maintain such properties and to equip them with innovative business models;
2. to analyse the economic and social potential of such practices and provide policy recommendations;
3. to highlight the importance of education, training and innovation for the maintenance and support of cultural heritage;
4. to tackle the issue of transmission of knowledge of cultural heritage to the younger generations and the acquisition of heritage skills by the new generation;
5. to tackle the issue of participatory governance for cultural heritage among public and private actors.
The preparatory action will run during 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage, making it an opportunity to raise wider awareness on the contribution of family-owned heritage houses to the protection of cultural heritage and its sustainable management.
