The congress will take place at Universidade Lusíada de Lisboa on 17th – 19th June 2016
The de-industrialization phenomenon of recent decades has created a large number of vacant industrial sites for which it is necessary to find a solution other than demolition.
Their restoration and re-use are possible and appropriate measures that can avoid such loss and destruction, with advantages for the preservation of historical memory, the urban equilibrium and regeneration of economically depressed areas.
As the main theme, this 3rd Congress proposes the presentation of practical examples and methodological reflections in the field of re – use of industrial sites, as well as approaches in other subject areas, such as Heritage, Archaeology, Museology and Industrial Tourism.
The call for abstracts and registration is now open, see the Events Diary for more details or visit //www.lis.ulusiada.pt/pt-pt/eventos/iiiinternacionalcongressonindustrialheritage-reuseofindustrialsitesachallengeforheritageconservation.aspx
