Built Heritage, Energy and Environmental - Friendly Integrated Tools for the sustainable management of Historic Urban Areas
The preservation of built heritage needs a model that is environmentally, economically and socially sustainable. The BhENEFIT project focuses on improving the management of historic built areas, combining the daily maintenance of historic heritage with its preservation and valorisation in a sustainable way. The project will look for novel solutions on how to evaluate the use and historical value of built areas and how to optimise building performances (its energy efficiency and structural behavioural increase).
The project will also deliver a long-term perspective for minimising emergency actions through a comprehensive monitoring strategy, which is aimed at the planned preservation of cultural heritage.
To implement such strategy, BhENEFIT will build management capacities, involve and coordinate relevant players from the public and private sectors and provide them with new innovative methodologies. The BhENEFIT methodology will be validated by 13 partners in eight different pilot areas, which are related to specific issues (earthquake, pollution, touristic flows, energy efficiency etc.). Moreover, new tools like action plans and ICT implementations will be customised to local needs.
#BhENEFIT has 13 partners from 7 different central European countries
BhENEFIT project has been hosted by the Int-Herit (Urbact) network project in Cahors - France. We had have the opportunity to cooperate, share ideas and present tools developed! From Febraury 20-22 Interreg cooperation went beyond our community to make results even more effective!

6th Consortium Meeting in Hungary
The meeting will be the first appointment in Hungary. Our partners, the Szabolcs 05 Regional Development Association of Municipality and the Eastern Hungarian European Initiatives Foundation, will host the consortium for a meeting dedicated to the up-date about the GIS and BIM Technologies pilot actions activities in Austria, Croatia, Italy and Slovakia and to the follow-on about the "Increasing awareness and capacity building" activities.
Following the successful publication of the culture e-book to which the Bhenefit project contributed, we took part to the Interact event “Activating cultural heritage in Interreg” in Vienna on the 5 December 2018. The event, organised within the framework of the closing of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, allowed to exchange insights on cultural heritage projects in Interreg programmes and give BhENEFIT project the opportunity to present its results in the foreseen exhibition.

After a survey of international Best practices related to Historic urban areas governance systems and 3 site visits, a Best Practice transfer tool has been produced to evaluate critical factors and costs of the transferability of a best practice to another context.
Deployment of a Web-GIS Platform for the integrated monitoring of changes and modifications in a HBA
The main outputs of the projects tackle several different challenges of HBA management: enhancement of awareness and skills of involved stakeholders, increase of data and information availability and systematic monitoring, increase of exchange and coordination among authorities and public/private organisations, increase of monitoring and planning tools.
