Smart Value Project
Full name of the Project:
Scientific Modern Analysis of Research Topic;
Values and valuation as key factors in protection, conservation and contemporary use of heritage – a collaborative research of European cultural heritage.
Project acronym:SMART Value
Project duration in months:
33 Months (start date 1 January 2014)
The project aims at creating a research consortium that will summarize the state of knowledge and experience as well as creatively develop a methodology for analysing the value of the protection, preservation and modern use of heritage.
The idea of the project is to use the experiences, methods and results of research on the cultural heritage values, that are conducted with regard to different types of heritage and in different conditions.
The main goal of the project is the widest possible use of international experience, gained in relation to different typological groups of heritage, and in relation to various systems of heritage valuation. The research areas were assumed taking into account various components: typological groups of cultural heritage, areas and aspects of the valuation.
The main research objective of project is to develop a holistic valuation methodology that will enable the perception and analysis of cultural heritage in the overall context of environmental conditions (cultural, ecological, social, economic dimensions)
The methodology developed as a result of the project will be open sourced to allow the valuation of heritage, taking into account different points of view.
The project consists of three main tasks: Elaboration and synthesis of the state-of-art (heritage values and valuations); Elaboration SMART Values methodology; Apply SMART Values methodology in pilot projects (analysis of selected heritage properties).
The project results will have the practical value - developed valuation model will be disseminated and will allow to optimize the activities concerning conservation, protection and use of heritage as well as significantly improve the understanding of stakeholders involved in these processes.
The added value resulting from the implementation of the project within the consortium will be the involvement and integration of researchers representing different conditions and scientific traditions - synergetic effect will be achieved.
