Welcome to the ROCK Open Knowledge Week! Join us to explore how ten ROCK cities collaborated with knowledge brokers and service providers, experimenting and advancing tools and approaches for sustainable, heritage-led urban regeneration. In his welcome note, Matteo Lepore, Deputy Mayor of the City of Bologna, discusses the potential of the cultural sector as a driver for recovery from the pandemic and in his keynote speech, Prof. Giovanni Leoni offers new pathways for heritage-led urban futures.

Join this session to learn how the ROCK project supported the transformation of urban areas into cultural and sustainable neighbourhoods in the historic centres of Bologna, Lisbon and Skopje. Each city has worked on specific pilot areas, temporary projects and technological tools to monitor this transformation, using innovative governance models. Representatives of the three ROCK Replicator Cities share knowledge that emerged through experimentation and co-design, demonstrating actions that showcase local approaches to the ROCK project.
Gather around the Campfire with representatives from the ROCK cities to learn about inspirations, learnings and transformative stories that emerged during the project. As the participating cities reflect on the futures of newly created synergies, this session offers insights into the exchange and mentoring process which was central to the ROCK project. EU Commission officers join this dialogue, sharing new opportunities provided by Horizon Europe for the future of cultural policy and a green recovery for Europe.
