IADR partner of the NEXT ROUTES project

IADR partner of the NEXT ROUTES project

For the next two years the Iron Age Danube Route will be one of the partners of the NEXT ROUTES project, funded by the EU Erasmus+ programme!
The NEXT ROUTES project focuses on an innovative approach to heritage management. Through planned activities, the project will reinforce Cultural Routes staff skills and knowledge related to digital and creative competencies, support Cultural Routes in the digital transition and help them manage and disseminate Cultural Routes contents in an engaging and effective way by promoting their cultural heritage through innovative gamification approaches. The project represents a great opportunity for the staff of the Cultural Routes involved, and will provide them with an easy-to-use tool and manual for the enhancement of the presentation of cultural heritage on their respective territories, thus making it accessible to all interested members and stakeholders.

The project partnership, consisting of 8 partners from 6 countries and led by the Phoenician’s Route, brings together Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe (the Phoenicians’ Route (Italy), the European Route of Jewish Heritage (Luxemburg), the European Mozart Ways (Austria), the Routes of the Olive Tree (Greece), the ATRIUM – Architecture of Totalitarian Regimes of the 20th Century In Europe’s Urban Memory (Italy) and the Iron Age Danube Route (Croatia) with the Mobile Idea Srl (Italy), which is one of the leading private companies in the EU specialized in technological innovation applied to the cultural and tourism sector, and the Breda University of Applied Sciences (the Netherlands).

Exchange of Good Practices between Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe - ROUTES4ROUTES

Exchange of Good Practices between Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe - ROUTES4ROUTES

The project ROUTES4ROUTES will increase Iron Age Danube Route staff competencies in archaeological heritage management through learning from already existing and tested good practices in the area of cultural route management. The participants will become aware of various models and tools that can be used to better connect the route with the communities archaeological heritage is located in, to make it more visible, and to find new approaches on how to serve as a connecting platform between heritage experts and SME's and tourism workers in order to help develop new business ideas or models for creating new cultural products, which would the overall increase the value of Iron Age archaeological heritage in the Danube region and would result in measurable benefits to the local communities. During ROUTES4ROUTES project activities, we plan to collaborate with colleges from hosting organizations in exchanging expertise and good practices regarding archaeological heritage management and cultural routes management. We plan to organize a practical combination of workshops, round tables and presentations with the host organization.
