HERitage Management e-Society




    Non-Governmental & Non-Profit Organisation for Digital Cultural Heritage



    Heritage Management e-Society (HERMeS) is a non-for-profit organization  dedicated on cultural heritage and ICT tools. HERMeS is an official Member Organization of Europa Nostra, aiming to document, rescue, manage, and disseminate all tangible and intangible aspects of Cultural Heritage, inside historical settlements around the world. Using all innovative digital tools available, HERMeS aims to offer accessibility of heritage to all social groups and ages, using innovative information technology and digital applications.



    The two main pillars of HERMeS focus on:


    The documentation of both Tangible and Intangible aspects of Heritage sites, using & design innovative IT tools

    The design of hybrid educational courses (both digital and physical), using all open-source data


    HERMeS consists of a multidisciplinary group of experts that work inside collective prototypes of projects, engaging communities in participation and cultivating local awareness. The research aspect focuses on good practices regarding the preservation and rescue of Cultural Heritage through restoration, conservation, and documentation, either in its material form or its immaterial qualities. The target is the design of a specific conservation plan for each documentation project.
