ROCK develops an innovative, collaborative and circular systemic approach for regeneration and adaptive reuse of historic city centres. Implementing a repertoire of successful heritage-led regeneration initiatives, ROCK test the replicability of the spatial approach and of successful models addressing the specific needs of historic city centres.
ROCK focuses on historic city centres as extraordinary laboratories to demonstrate how Cultural Heritage can be a unique and powerful engine of regeneration, sustainable development and economic growth for the whole city.
ROCK aims to support the transformation of historic city centres afflicted by physical decay, social conflicts and poor life quality into Creative and Sustainable Districts through shared generation of new sustainable environmental, social, economic processes.
ROCK aims to develop an innovative, collaborative and systemic approach to promote the effective regeneration and adaptive reuse in historic city centres by implementing a repertoire of successful heritage-led regeneration initiatives related to 7 Role Model selected cities: Athens, Cluj-Napoca, Eindhoven, Liverpool, Lyon, Turin and Vilnius.
The replicability and effectiveness of the approach and of the related models in addressing the specific needs of historic city centres and in integrating site management plans with associated financing mechanisms will be tested in 3 Replicator Cities: Bologna, Lisbon and Skopje.
The ROCK interoperable platform
Developed by Corvallis makes the data generated in the context of the project and the assets made available by the cities freely and easily accessible. The data, loaded by the project partners, are available as open data and are synchronized with the semantic and big data components of the system. The application allows the analysis of the data collected through dynamic dashboards, an interactive map for navigating the semantic layer and an endpoint for queries using sparql.
