The overall objective of this researc prosject is to estimate economic effects of cultural heritage in the community of Røros. This includes both the effects of cultural heritage in general, and the effects associated with the site’s World Heritage registration (UNESCO Norway).
Other objectives include revealing how management of cultural heritage can affect economic value, and exploring the inherent conflicts between value creation and conservation of cultural heritage.
The study aims to increase the knowledge about the possibilities and limitations in the management strategy “conservation through use” to support a common understanding among local actors of the action space for use and management of cultural heritage.
