Time Heritage is active since 2003 in the field of cultural heritage management and enhancement through interdisciplinary actions. We aim at developing new and innovative ideas in a European networking environment focusing on culture as a factor for sustainable development of local communities.

This is the reason why we collaborate on one hand with research and higher education organizations and, on the other, with local government authorities. As our policy is to achieve extrovert activity for us and our clients, since 2014 we also participate at EU-funded projects.

Time Heritage is the only company in Greece that covers such a wide range of activities related to the management and protection of cultural heritage. In particular, our activities include:
