Final Beneficiaries

 

 

 

The BSUDRA project started from the identification of the component of the joint cultural inheritance– the Roman historical and archeological heritage – , which represents the fundament of this cultural and educational initiative meant and implemented in cooperation with partners from the Black Sea coast countries.

 

The novelty and relevance of the project for the Black Sea Basin consist in the fact that, this time, a local public authority acknowledges the need and importance of knowing the historic past and the cultural heritage of the Black Sea Basin countries as a basis for the integrate promotion of such values. This public authority manages to bring together institutions involved in the fields of research, conservation and management of cultural heritage, and also in the education and shaping the competences in this direction of the young generation, of all countries eligible in the project, in a joint action, of knowledge and valorization of the Roman heritage.

 

The Roman heritage is thus concerned both as cultural, identity value, component of the historic inheritance of each people in the Black Sea area, but also as value creating value, by the valorization of such heritage by means of cultural tourism.
