HERMES

The intention of the HERMES project is to promote and to support sustainable regional development by innovative interactions of cultural heritage and the new electronic media. In particular, the project aims to upgrade regional identity by improving the perception of heritage with the help of new media tools and to maintain historical sites by new uses. While doing so, cultural and media institutions from 8 CADSES states will be working together based on partnership. Already during the project development, media enterprises have been involved as well. Thatʼs how HERMES helps to prepare concrete large-scale investments in an attractive growth sector.  

All HERMES activities are based on a completely new approach of interaction between urban, cultural and media spaces which will become very important in regard to future strategies of spatial development in the entire CADSES territory. Furthermore, the project concretely effects both the economic development and the preservation of cultural heritage sites in the regions involved. 

With the project the following main activities will be carried out:
  • Trans-national feasibility studies and pilot projects as a basis for media promotion and tourist use of common European Heritage Roots (Ancient Greece, Byzantine culture, Romanesque/Gothic, Classical Period, Industrial Heritage, Deformation of European Cultures by Fascism and Totalitarianism, Modern/ Bauhaus);
  • Preservation and redevelopment of cultural heritage sites based on trans-national concepts by introducing new utilisation and settling of SME, especially in the field of new media;
  • Promoting the attractiveness of  cultural heritage sites by electronic forms of presentation and communication, with special focus on young people and tourists (i.e. Heritage-Internet-Cafés); 
  • Building up a CADSES Heritage-Internet-Radio with the involvement of  radio stations from 8 countries, developing new tools of Internet Live-Streaming as well as presenting CADSES Heritage-Media-Bridges (“virtual cultural routes”);
  • Providing CADSES-wide open educational and qualification offers for young experts and multipliers (continuous capacity building);
