This survey will be available online in Portuguese and English and a Portuguese-language version of the full survey will be published. patrimonio.pt will publish regular updates during the course of the survey with the interim results.
Faced with the clear trend of sector organising, strategic approach and increase in size and magnitude of the agents' performance, it is essential to assess the current moment from the standpoint of the organization of the organization of the heritage management system, and to compare that assessment with the most relevant international case studies. It is also essential to calculate the value that such an ubiquitous resource has for our country. Crossing this data will allow us to identify management models, priority actions, criteria, i.e., define a long-term strategy to improve the return, sustainability and sharing of cultural heritage in Portugal.
This survey has three parts:
Part I focuses on the sector's policies, their historic evolution, current context, main bodies and resources; critical analysis of the issues involved in modern heritage management, trends, economic operators and opportunities. Comparison with ofther noteworthy international management models;
Part II focuses on the economic and social analysis of this sector in Portugal, starting from the framework of the first part and based on quantitative data collected from established institutions and a methodology created specifically for this survey;
Part III will try to merge the conclusions of the previous parts, with the goal of creating possible development scenarios and provide strategic recommendations of the next decade.
We acknowledge the relevance of heritage as a local resource that can play a key role in the harmonious development of the country, as it is evenly distributed and has many different types.
