OVERALL CONCEPT ROCK is based on the development of a shared multi-cultural, multi-heritage and multi-stakeholders city vision, which integrates heritage-led regeneration, sustainable economic development, city promotion, and knowledge sharing.
All the involved cities are characterized by their high Cultural Heritage (CH) value: the Role Model cities have already experienced a transformation from Heritage cities to Creative and Knowledge-based cities, while the Replicators are currently initiating the process, developing transformation programes, finance and engaging key-players.
ROCK develops and applies an innovative circular systemic approach to connect different actors, places of CH value and systems, at a European level, facilitating the innovation process and the adoption of environmentally and socially sound solutions to achieve sustainable growth.
ROCK conceptualizes an innovative circular urban system model – the ROCK Circle – to implement such process.
