Innovating Cities: Cultural Heritage in Action

The Final Conference and Business Matching Event of the ROCK Project

When: 14-15 May 2020

Where: Bologna, Italy

For three years, ten cities participating in the ROCK project Athens, Bologna, Cluj-Napoca, Eindhoven, Liverpool, LisbonLyon, Skopje, Turin, and Vilniuswere developing innovative solutions that demonstrate how cultural heritage can be the driving force behind the city’s overall sustainability. Supported by service providers and knowledge brokers from among project partners, the ROCK cities tested and advanced numerous tools and approaches aimed at shaping sustainable, heritage-led urban futures. At the final project conference, they will share their results, lessons learned, and best practices, while the subsequent business matching event will become a forum for promoting innovative solutions for historic urban centres.

The conference and business matching event will bring together local governments, businesses, policy makers, and researchers looking for new ways in which cultural heritage can contribute to the regeneration, sustainable development, and economic growth of the entire city.

Event participants will take a close look at the solutions implemented by ROCK partners in three domains:

  • Social innovation
  • Technological innovation
  • Organisational innovation
