D1.1 Review of Research Literature, Policy Programmes and (good and bad) Practices
Report that features the recent literature on assessing the impact of cultural heritage interventions across the cultural, social, economic and environmental domains. The research draws from academic resources, current policies and regulations, as well as social platforms. The content is structured around Trends, Policies, Gaps & Opportunities and Strategies.
D1.2 Concise Essay mapping existing Gaps, Issues and Problems
The essay builds upon the findings of the previous D1.1 by mapping gaps and shortcomings identified throughout the literature review, and through collective reflection during the Athens’ Virtual Workshop process. The D1.2 adopts a critical point of view to synthesize these findings towards the formulation of a holistic cultural heritage impact assessment.
D4.3 The Athens Virtual Workshop: “Towards a Holistic Heritage Impact Assessment Model”. Proceedings
This document summarizes the contributions made during the first workshop with SoPHIA´s community of practice, as well as the outcomes of the discussion groups. It includes the Workshop Agenda and the presentations.
D2.1 Mapping of Impact Assessment Practices in Cultural Heritage
The identification and mapping of existing impact assessment practices in cultural heritage aims at collecting information on well and poorly done practices. SoPHIA´s Advisory Board members and stakeholders were asked to share their thoughts and experiences via an open questionnaire. The mapping comprises the executive summary, aims and methodology, reflection on practices using Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA), examples of IA practices and conclusions. This review proves to be a crucial exercise in identifying key factors that will define the process of developing the SoPHIA model and others.
D2.2 Case Studies Report
The report summarizes the findings of the case studies in which the draft impact assessment model (SoPHIA model) has been applied. Testing the SoPHIA model along the lines of these cases was a crucial exercise for identifying necessary adaptations to the model. All case studies are included in the annex of D2.2, portraying rich insights into the impact of various interventions in Europe throughout the last 20 years.
D5.6 Stakeholder Conference
This document reports on the SoPHIA´s Stakeholders Virtual Conference, on April 21 and 22, 2021, with the materials that were made public before the Conference: agenda, bios of the speakers, introduction to the topics of the Conference, brief description of SoPHIA´s case studies, the press release and the visual identity of the event (in additton, see D4.6 Proceedings)
D4.6 SoPHIA´s Stakeholders Virtual Conference: Cultural Heritage - Rethinking Impact Assessments. Proceedings
The proceedings of the SoPHIA´s Stakeholders Virtual Conference, on April 21 and 22, 2021, collect the discussions that took place in the form of panels, with pressing issues of cultural heritage that have proven to be relevant to the twelve cases of interventions analyzed in the project against the testing phase of the impact assessment draft model. They also account for the inputs collected on cross-cutting issues and counter-effects of the impact of CH interventions, directly related to the three axis of the draft model: people, dimensions and time.
D2.3 Impact Assessment Model
The Model aims at assessing the impacts of cultural heritage interventions. The holistic/multi- and cross-domain Model is based on the three-axis time, people and domains, with sustainability and resilience as overarching concepts. The Model is intended for policy makers, managers and practitioners, institutional observers and independent researchers. The main features have been identified through the literature review (D1.1, D1.2) along with the analysis of best practices (D2.1), the case studies (D2.2), workshops and conferences (D4.3, D4.6, D4.7), and the continuous consultations with the project´s stakeholders and advisory board members.
D4.7 SoPHIA Stakeholders´ Workshop: Towards Policy Recommendations for Holistic Heritage Impact Assessment. Proceedings
The proceedings of the SoPHIA Stakeholders´ Workshop (SW) are framed within the third phase of the project, that provided, on the one hand, for a last discussion on the definition of an effective holistic impact assessment model, as well as the quality standards and guidelines for future policies and programmes in Europe. Discussions at the SW were guided by the following questions: are the main challenges identified sufficient?; are there innovative research streams other than those suggested?; are there policy recommendations others than those suggested?
D5.4 Dissemination and Exploitation Plan
The Plan focuses on the dissemination towards and uptake of results by specific audiences. Activities in this sense are planned as the project unfolds, being guided by the overarching actions that the document presents.
D5.5 SoPHIA Newsletters
Newsletters produced by SoPHIA account for the project life and introduce readers to issues related to cultural heritage impact assessment, mainly based on the scientific outputs and results as well as on processes. Newsletters count with editorials, news, interviews and report on collaborations with other related projects and networks.
