The seminarsalways included site visits and case study examples whichare now presented within the Final Report.The network’s activities are based on the assumption thatcultural heritage has a contribution to make to the processesof territorial valorisation and modernisation and has to beconsidered as a major resource for economic developmentand social cohesion.
