SG7 – Integrated Safety and Security of Cultural heritage and Built Environment

SG7

The necessities related to the security/safety of the built environment and cultural heritage requires a holistic response, which has to fully comply with the heterogeneity of the risks and the typology and uses of the different structures and heritage.

Safety and sustainability of the Built Environment

Necessities

  • Promotion and improvement of the safety of the built environment;
  • Risk assessment in crisis events due to environmental factors and accidental and deliberate human actions;
  • Risk mitigation against environmental hazards.

Technological and research requirements

  • Development of systems able to couple long-term monitoring and quick damage assessment, based on the integration of non-invasive techniques (electromagnetic and acoustic sensing) and ICT tools;
  • Development of advanced systems for the verifi cation of the structural integrity and safety, based on wireless networks and sensors;
  • Continuous control of buildings in order to prevent malfunctioning of the technological plants and to support crisis management.

Cultural Heritage Protection

Necessities

  • Protection of the Cultural Heritage against environmental risks and accidental and deliberate human actions;
  • Security of the mobile heritage;
  • Security of the visitors.

Technological and research requirements

  • Development of integrated systems able to ensure the security of the cultural heritage artefacts and of the visitors, based on sensing technologies, automatic recognition of persons, automatic scene analysis, identifi cation of non-licit human behaviours;
  • Development of systems able to provide cultural heritage security during the fruition and the movement of mobile artefacts;
  • Development of capabilities for crisis management in response to deliberate human actions and disasters, based on sensing/observation technologies, risk scenario modelling and prediction, training tools.
