Databenc is a not-for-profit company, the purpose of the consortium is to undertake initiatives to build an integrated network of research, experimentation, training and dissemination, creating innovative outputs related to cultural heritage, sites and activities, to plan valorisation paths and to promote start-ups and spin-offs. The District’s areas of intervention are knowledge, including through the development of integrated systems for cognitive protection; monitoring, through the development of a diagnostic system for conservation protection; and fruition, through a sustainable system for safeguarding use. In this way, scientific services and experimentation and analysis will be carried out, through an interdisciplinary management of the skills and professionalism of the members, for the applicative development of innovative techniques and ICT solutions for the investigation, cataloguing, survey and design of restoration, recovery, eco-compatible reconversion and valorisation of the archaeological and historical, artistic, architectural and landscape heritage, planning and monitoring of complex development processes and environmental quality control. Databenc, therefore, is configured as an ecosystem of open innovation, based on an evolved network of public and private subjects (institutions, universities, research centres, companies, associations, etc.) which, by capitalising on the innovative capital of each (scientific, technological, economic, relational, social), generates, disseminates and preserves shareable value. To achieve a modern mode of use that fully meets the expectations of the new generation of users and is sustainable, the District intends to experiment with, for example, solutions for user/visitor interaction (on-site, on-line, remote) through physical reality paths (3D scenography, medium immersivity, single/multiple use), augmented reality on mobile platforms (close mode, high immersivity, single/multiple use), virtual reconstruction applications (remote mode, limited immersivity, single/multiple use), learning paths (training/dissemination). The High Technology District for Cultural Heritage, in line with the directives of the Horizon 2020 initiative, intends to propose the concepts of Smart Innovation and Smart Environment as effective, carefully planned and fully sustainable actions. The members of the consortium are universities, research centres, industrial consortia, companies
