Description

Description of an organization 

An institution specialized in (i) social and economic development (ii) climate change, (iii) waste management, (iv) energy, and (v) environmental protection is searching for an innovative partner with expertise in social innovation, entrepreneurship and/or energy efficiency to apply for H2020 project.

It is a B&H based leading multi-disciplinary development institution with a staff of 35 full-time professionals. The organization has more than 15 years of experience in environment, energy, and economic development studies. The organization also has offices in Serbia with successfully implemented projects through-out the region.

Overview of the R&D project

Abandonment and decay of urban, industrial and rural heritage has occurred in many historic urban areas and cultural landscapes in Europe due to reduction of economic activities and closing down of industries. This has led to unemployment, disengagement and economic stagnation. Thanks to their symbolic and cultural value, and to their specific urban fabric, historic areas have the potential to be transformed into hubs of entrepreneurship, creativity, innovation, new lifestyles, and social and cultural integration reaping the opportunities offered by, for instance, emerging creative sectors, digital technologies, the sharing and 'maker' economy, and social innovation.

This project plans to develop, demonstrate and document strategies, approaches and solutions to re-activate and re-generate historic urban areas and cultural landscapes by fostering innovation by relevant start-ups, cultural and creative industries, including from the digital technologies sector, small scale advanced manufacturing producers and local 'makers', craft workshops, etc. for adaptive re-use and leverage of heritage assets and social integration.

Project aims to involve local populations, research centers, SMEs, NGOs, appropriate authorities, innovators and universities.

The project results are expected to contribute to:
- boosting heritage and culture-relevant innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship and light 'reindustrialisation' of historic urban areas and cultural landscapes;
- cross-sector collaboration, creation of job opportunities and skills in cultural and creative sectors and innovative manufacturing linked to historic heritage.

To ensure geographic, socio-economic and cultural diversity coverage across Europe, consortia must include at least 4 historic areas and/or cultural landscapes from different Member States or Associated Countries that are committed to implement and assess the proposed schemes during the project for transforming them into hubs of entrepreneurship and social and cultural integration. The consortium is currently having two areas (from Bosnia and Herzegovina and from Croatia) and is in search for an identification of additional sites (same countries are also acceptable). Furthermore, the proposal is being developed with one research institution from Slovenia, one institute from Croatia and a historical muesum representatives from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
