WHAT WE DO
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.
1# IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES
Application of new technologies in cultural management and museum education: Documentation and content development. Time Heritage works with cultural operators and technology and development agencies to create websites, web portals, e-learning, 3D applications, and more. We undertake research, development of educational and training programs, drafting and translation of texts, documentation of images, database creation and information analysis.
3# CULTURAL HERITAGE ENHANCEMENT AND MANAGEMENT
Ehancement and management of Cultural Heritage through interdiscisciplinary actions. The philosophy of the company is cooperation. That is why we are drafting and implementing programs combining humnities (mainly history and archeology) with conservation, physico-chemical analysis, new technologies, multimedia, thus promoting the interdisciplinarity and the global emergence of the cultural reserve.
4# EUROPEAN PROGRAMS
Since 2014, we have been working systematically on European projects either on the drafting of proposals or as partners. We believe that extrovert approach and European cooperation provides opportunity for creative development of ideas and achievement of knowledge as well as for networking and exchange of experience.
5# PUBLICATIONS, EDITING AND TRANSLATION SERVICES
Our specialized team of writers and translators guarantees the high quality of editing and translation of texts related to our fields of expertise. We also have the possibility of publishing either in collaboration with other institutions and researchers or even independently.
6# SEMINARS, EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND LIFELONG LEARNING
Seminars and Vocational training have been for several years one of the main activities of Time Heritage, aiming at bringing the Greek audience (particularly students and young professionals) in contact with new or less well-known disciplines in the heritage sectors. Now we are opening up also to other audiences, namely chidren and the genenral public for creative and informative seminars and workshops
