Neapolis University in Cyprus participates in the presentation of the preliminary results of the research project HOMEE

Dr. Evanthia Dova, Lecturer in Architecture, and Dr. Natia Anastasi, Special Teaching Staff, of the School of Architecture, Engineering, Land and Environmental Studies in Neapolis University in Cyprus, participated in the presentation of the preliminary results of the research project “HOMEE: Heritage Opportunities/Threats Within Mega-Events in Europe: Changing Environments, New Challenges and Possible Solutions for Preservation in Mega-Events Embedded in Heritage-Rich European Cities”, in Krakow, Poland, on Sept. 19, 2019. The presentation was part of the 5th Heritage Forum of Central Europe (19-20.9.2019), titled “Heritage and Environment”, hosted by the International Cultural Center, an institution that focuses on issues of culture and heritage.

The partners of the HOMEE international research project, which studies the relationships between mega-events and historic cities, are the Polytechnic University of Milan (Politecnico di Milano, ΙΤ), the University of Hull (UK), Neapolis University in Cyprus (CY) and the International Cultural Center (Międzynarodowe Centrum Kultury, PL). The case of Pafos, a small city with a rich history, and the European Capital of Culture 2017, is of exceptional interest concerning the opportunities for the enhancement of its cultural heritage and the threats posed by an event of such magnitude. These particularities were highlighted by Dr. Dova during the afternoon session, to the project partners, academics from the Jagellonian University, and delegates from municipalities and cultural institutions in Warsaw, Krakow, Lublin and Wrocław (European Capital of Culture 2016).

Neapolis University in Cyprus is going to host the next stage of the project in Pafos, in meetings and public presentations to take place in the spring of 2020. The completion of the project, expected in September 2021, will result in a series of suggestions on approaches to cultural heritage within the scope of mega-event organization.

The preliminary results of the HOMEE project research are available at the following links: the summary of case studies and the results of the literature review.

The current project is of great scientific interest especially in light of Pafos 2017, and is supported by the general philosophy and climate of research that is promoted at NUP through the participation to competitive EU projects.
