FP7 HERCULES project

HERCULES - Sustainable Futures for Europe's Heritage in Cultural Landscapes: Tools for understanding, managing, and protecting landscape functions and values.

HERCULES was transdisciplinary research project that aimed to increase
understanding of drivers, patterns, and values of European cultural
landscapes and to use this knowledge to develop, test, and demonstrate
strategies for their protection, management, and planning.

Hercules’ objectives included:

  • To empower public and private actors to protect and sustainably manage cultural landscapes
  • To develop meta-analytic database of literature and expert knowledge on cultural landscape transformation
  • To perform well-documented case studies on the long- and short-term histories and change in cultural landscapes
  • To elaborate a pan-European cultural landscape typology and map, validated by citizen engagement through crowdsourcing
  • To provide new modelling approaches to assess future landscape developments and policy impacts on cultural landscapes
  • To design recommendations for landscape policy and practice


This project had received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 603447. FP7, Collaborative Project, 1 December 2013 – 30 November 2016
