Project details



Smart Heritage City

Start date: 01.07.2016

Duration: 30 months

Coordinator: Fundación Santa María la Real del Patrimonio Histórico

Budget: 1.19 M€


The Smart Heritage City Project (SHCity) began in 2016 under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Interreg V Sudoe program, and is developed by a multidisciplinary team from Spain, France and Portugal.

SHCity tackles the challenge of encouraging the evolution of the Smart City to the Smart Heritage City. In order to achieve this it will create a single open source tool to gather data on heritage urban centres and facilitate the work of the administrators in charge of their management. The solution that the project proposes will integrate data gathered by networks of sensors used in the urban setting that will allow controlling of and responding to the risk elements affecting buildings and their surroundings, the management of energy consumption, and the control and planning of the flow of visitors. The management system will be demonstrated and validated in the city of Ávila in Spain which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
