Short description: The countries belonging to the Adrion macro region have an archaeological heritage of outstanding cultural and historic importance. Nevertheless, their important heritage, presenting great potential, has not yet been well managed and fully exploited according to socio-economic perspectives. Until present, the management of the archaeological heritage of the different Adrion countries is based on a similar legislative and political approach focusing on a mere conservation and preservation. In other words, what is currently lacking is a model for the valorisation and exploitation of archaeological heritage integrated in the territorial planning and also a model for the planning of archaeological parks. The common challenge faced by TRANSFER is to jointly raise the level of preservation and valorisation of the Archaeological heritage in the Adrion area through the elaboration of a shared governance model for the archaeological parks and its deploying in Management Plans. The Governance model and Plans will be based on: the integration and comparison of institutional practices of public bodies dedicated to protection; advanced level of research findings and know-how provided by research bodies; the needs of economic actors and local communities. The territorial and cultural values of the archaeological areas will increase thanks to the innovative governance model and by joint practices and valorisation tools and services (e.g. ICT solutions for enriching the visitors’ experience and for analysing their needs, as well as the establishment of new economic services linked to the archaeological areas, such as cultural tourist routes). This will contribute to significant economic and tourism growth, to the general improvement of the quality of life of the areas involved, to the widening of the type of users and, consequently, to local sustainable development.
