HYPERION’s Final Event: Building up Cultural Heritage’s Resilience

After four years full of research & extensive tests in four pilot sites, the journey of the EU project HYPERION came to an end with remarkable achievements in Cultural Heritage preservation!

On the 20th of April 2023, the consortium organized HYPERION’s Final – Training & Demo Event at the Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti | Instituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti in Venice. The event was inaugurated by Mr. Georgios Charalampous, Research Programme Manager in REA and Mrs. Marie Yeroyianni Senior Expert at European Commission – Innovating Cities. Venice’s vice mayor, Mr. Andrea Tomaello kicked off the 2nd half of the event, pointing out the importance of HYPERION’s results on the survival of Venice’s cultural heritage monuments and the city’s sustainability.

During the event a series of interactive presentations and demonstrations  took place showcasing HYPERION results and presenting for the 1st time the integrated resilience assessment platform which was developed during the project’s course. The platform will help local authorities’ representatives and cultural heritage managers to gain a better understanding of the threats and dangers of tangible Cultural Heritage sites and make decisions for a swifter and more effective response, contributing to the sustainable reorganization of the historical regions under threat.

The event was co-organized by the City of Venice and HYPERION’s Coordinator, the ISENSE Group  of ICCS.
