Title: The SoPHIA platform for Holistic Heritage Impact Assessment



Assis. Prof. Nicholas Anastasopoulos, School of Architecture, National Technical University of Athens

The EU sees Cultural heritage as a key area for Europe's future. However, models for assessing the impact of interventions on cultural heritage are either missing or limited and fragmented. SoPHIA, a H2020 project which stands for Social Platform for Holistic Impact Heritage Assessment aims to promote collective reflection within the cultural and political sector in Europe on the impact assessment and quality of interventions in European historical environment and cultural heritage at urban level. This social platform is a diverse community of stakeholders from different fields and disciplines interested in interventions in historical environments and cultural heritage in Europe, and it facilitates the definition of an effective impact assessment model, quality standards, and guidelines for future policies and programmes.

This panel session brings to the academic community the results, and experience gained from the SoPHIA project emphasizing on its principles, reflections on the methodology adopted, and on some of the case studies.
