Welcome to the website of the 3rd International congress on industrial heritage, under the subject: Reuse of industrial sites: a challenge for heritage conservation.
The congress will take place at Universidade Lusíada de Lisboa installations.
The de-industrialization phenomenon of recente decades has created a large number of vacant industrial sites for which is necessary to find a solution other than demolition.
Their restoration and re-use are possible and appropriate measures that can avoid such loss and destruction, with advantages for the preservation of historical memory, the urban equilibrium and regeneration of economically depressed areas.
As main theme, this 3rd Congress proposes the presentation of pratical examples and methodological reflections in the field of re - use of industrial sites, as well as approaches in other subject areas, such as Heritage, Archaeology, Museology and Industrial Tourism.
