Archaeology and cultural heritage management have undergone significant scientific and professional developments over the last 25 years.
The NEARCH project aims to study the various dimensions of public participation in archaeology today and to propose new ways of working and cooperating in a profession strongly concerned by the current economic crisis.
Coordinated by the French National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research (Inrap), NEARCH relies on a European-wide cooperation network . The project is supported by the European Commission for 5 years (2013-2018) in the framework of the “Culture Programme”.
