παλίμψηστος < palimpsestos, ‘again’ + ‘scrape’
Welcome to PALIMPSEST
PALIMPSEST is an Horizon Europe funded research project that aims at regenerating the lost sustainability wisdom in heritage landscapes through co-creation with creative actors, technical stakeholders and civic society. Three pilot locations with cultural identities and environmental problems will be used to experiment and envision novel landscape scenarios.
