ELAICH – Educational Linkage Approach In Cultural Heritage

Heritage Education and Tourism
by Dr. Anna lobovikov-Katz, 2011
Technion – Israel Institute of Technology
ELAICH Coordinator

ELAICH is a EU-funded Project in the framework of Euromed Heritage 4 Programme, and it is aimed at awareness raising among the general public, and especially youth in cultural heritage, its values and its preservation and conservation. The project was started on February 1, 2009, and is to be concluded in 2012. The ELAICH multi-disciplinary international team is leaded by the Technion – Israel Institute of  Technology, and includes conservation experts from four Universities: University of Antwerp, NTUA – National Technical University of Athens, University of Malta and University Ca’ Foscari of Venice.
During the two years since the start of the project period, the ELAICH international team has developed an innovative educational approach, based on both research and teaching experience of its partners, and applied through lessons in class, laboratory exercises, in-situ “intellectual” and e-learning support.
The ELAICH course through its short and long versions, provides an introduction into the contemporary interdisciplinary field of the conservation of monuments, while it’s important focal point is developing a basic ability of on-site understanding of a historic building/ site, with a view of a possible future contribution of the ELAICH students to preservation of cultural (built) heritage, and especially on its post-conservation intervention stage – the stage of maintenance and monitoring.
Basic abilities  of understanding and perception of historic buildings, might be used by the ELAICH students in their everyday life in their immediate built and natural environment and their own cultural heritage, e.g. their schools,  homes and other buildings. Furthermore, they could apply it also during their vacations e.g. towards the cultural heritage of countries and regions other than their own.  At this point, the former/current ELAICH students could become a “contributing tourists” – contributing to the preservation of the other countries’ cultural heritage, e.g. through reporting deterioration phenomena observed by them at a historic site, etc.
During the project period, ELAICH partners actually teach in the ELAICH courses in Greece, Israel, Malta, Italy, Turkey and other Mediterranean countries. By the end of the project period, the ELAICH toolkit will be provided through the e-platform, and translations will be provided in several local Mediterranean languages, in addition to the English version. This will make it accessible to users in different countries, and facilitate awareness raising in cultural heritage and its preservation among the general public.
