Project Atlas (Advanced Tools for Low-carbon, high-value development of historic architecture in the Alpine Space), aims at paving the way for sustainable development of historic structures. This will include capitalizing and optimizing existing best practice solutions for building refurbishment and regional development. Stakeholders of the whole value chain and decision-makers are included in a network to ensure sustainability from social, ecological and cultural points of view. ATLAS will establish instruments for Low Carbon development of historic buildings and sites and will promote historic buildings retrofit as a task not only for single building owners but for the whole civil society. The project also fosters the exchange of best practice experiences and high-level knowledge from all Alpine regions on energy retrofit and sustainable regional development in order to remove uncertainties, quantify co-benefits and socio-economic value, and provide the ground for the integration of historic buildings and sites in low-carbon policies and regional development strategies.
- Raise awareness on the necessity and benefits of sustainable development of traditional Alpine architecture.
- Promote technical and methodological instruments to foster the retrofitting of historic buildings.
- Bridge the gap between research and practice with existing examples of best practice solutions for implementation in a transnational context.
