Summary of the project: The RESCULT project aims at enhancing the capability of Civil Protection (CP) to prevent/mitigate disasters impacts on Cultural Heritage (CH).

This will be done through the realization of an integrated European Interoperable Database for CH, designed to provide a unique framework (now inexistent) for CP, national Ministries of CH, the EU and local authorities: it will be a supporting decision tool to understand the risk of damage to CH as well as its impact on social cohesion, sustainable cultural tourism and engagement with local communities in protecting the environment, as envisaged by the Union Civil Protection Mechanism.
