An Innovative Holistic Approach to Impact Assessment of Cultural Interventions: The SoPHIA Model

SoPHIA Consortium

Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issueScientificpeer-review


Assessment of cultural interventions in historic sites in the EU has
never been the subject of a systematic approach; therefore, the EC, in its call for research projects (Topic TRANSFORMATIONS-16-2019 Call H2020-2018-2020), has stimulated a careful consideration of all significant factors that operate within the framework of resilience and sustainability. The National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) inaugurated the first semester of the SoPHIA project with the task to coordinate an extensive review of current impact assessment strategies as these appear mainly in Europe, and to compile literature on pertinent research, policies, and best practices in impact assessment of cultural interventions.
The sections that follow describe the methodology of the literature review process as well as the main findings of the overall research.
