Involving universities, cultural heritage institutions, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), local associations, groups of citizens, national and regional administrations, REACH was able to catalyse challenges and innovative pathways across the EU and Beyond. The project addressed Cultural Heritage (CH) as a production and competitiveness factor and a driver for sustainable growth.

Participative mediation processes were explored, between local stakeholders, communities and regional administration and institutions promoting co-governance.

Participants in the REACH network were encouraged to provide links to best practices to demonstrate examples of how to empower local communities in the safeguarding, valuing and protecting their CH.

Members of the REACH network were invited to participate at various levels in the pilots, contributing with experiences, responding to surveys and questionnaires, and attending conferences, workshops and local encounters.

Addressing the challenge of how to give culture and CH a greater, more relevant and even transformative  role - in the economy, communities, and territories - requires solid foundations. In this respect, REACH proposed to adopt an integrated model of a resilient European CH milieu which was developed through the dialogue and collaboration with the participants in the REACH network.

REACH aimed to establish the widest range of collaboration with other Projects, Organizations and Institutions in the domain of CH research.
