Preserving and Sustainably Governing Cultural Heritage and Landscapes in European Coastal and Maritime Regions (PERICLES) is an EU–funded research and innovation project running until 2021.  The overall aim of the project is to develop a comprehensive framework to understand, preserve and make use of our maritime heritage for societal good. 

Europe–wide activities include the creation of a transnational stakeholder network and the publication of a handbook of tools for mapping, conserving and exploiting cultural heritage.  The team are also developing an online mapping portal for heritage data collection.  The portal will have many practical applications, including identifying heritage at risk, helping to integrate heritage into marine plans, and as a trigger for identifying different heritage narratives and values.

Locally, Queen’s University Belfast have begun case study work in Belfast Port where they hope to re–establish forgotten narratives of Belfast’s port heritage and preserve its shipyard identity among the communities it was founded on.

They are also currently investigating how cultural heritage and coastal and marine policies interact, and are conducting interviews with a diverse range of people, including policy makers, planners, heritage professionals and marine organisations.  These will contribute to recommendations for improved policy integration across Europe.

The PERICLES team at Queen’s University Belfast are looking to speak with anyone who has an interest in heritage and the policy system.  If you’re interested in participating in a half–hour interview for the policy study, or would like to know more about the case study work, please contact Laura Ferguson (L.Ferguson@qub.ac.uk).  For more information about the project visit the website www.pericles-heritage.eu.
