ORIGIN
The term ‘Smart Heritage’ was coined in Spain at a joint meeting at a round table in 2014 at the International Biennial of Art and Heritage Management (AR&PA) in Valladolid about ‘India-Spain Co-operation in the field of Heritage Conservation and Management’. During the roundtable, INTACH suggested initiating a programme wherein a group of heritage experts, with diverse approaches, would debate about challenges faced by heritage and the acts of heritage preservation and promotion in the wake of changing global scenarios, specifically in the case of ‘Smart’ cities. The idea was born out of an objective to transform these debates into a collection of ‘essential lessons’ to deliberate on smart heritage in smart cities.

BACKGROUND
The general aim is to organise a three-day consultative meet to understand broadly the concept of ‘Smart Heritage’, analysing the meaning of ‘Smart Heritage within a Smart City’ as well as understanding the application of the concept within the management of a ‘Smart City’. There will be a special field visit within the city where the participants will get a direct experience through a background study of the city’s “Smart City” project.

OBJECTIVE
The operational objective is to create awareness around the concept of “Smart Heritage” in Smart City. The consultative meet will also endeavour to make ideas like community participation, e-governance, and new operational technologies popular. The consultative meet will also try to study the initial effect that the ‘Smart City’ project has had on Heritage using the entire city as our study pool.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
Upon completion of this course the participants should be able to:
• Understand the concept of Smart Heritage
• Apply the concept in to produce a dossier of recommendations of the lessons learned in order to be transferable to other Smart Cities in India.
• Recognise the aspects within a Smart Heritage within a Smart City
• Critically analyse the historical assets in cities as well as finding practical solutions to bridge the gap between heritage and urban development.
