Protecting, restoring and enhancing heritage mean constantly having to come up with new solutions in a changing context, undertaking multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research, trialing new models and new methods and promoting the rational use of the new technologies.

 Recommended courses of action for D8

  • Inform heritage players, in co-operation with specialists, about the new technologies, including their potential and their limits
  • Carry out pre-restoration work studies using non-invasive technologies (digitisation, augmented reality, 3D scanners, modelling, drones, LiDAR, etc.)
  • Use non-invasive exploration techniques to study inaccessible or fragile areas
  • Develop representations of heritage by means of the new technologies (modelling, 3D printing)
