The Instituto Pedro Nunes is developing the E-GUIDE, an application that combines new technologies to enhance the enjoyment of the territories.

The Universidade de Coimbra is co-executor in the production of historical content for the network.

In essence, we aim to improve the condition of monuments, sited in an area with greater opportunities for creative and economic empowerment. Therefore, under the QREN, the Agency is responsible for launching training initiatives and network projects that include the implementation and development of the following:

  • Website development;
  • Cross-city travel itineraries and circuits;
  • Network promotional film development;
  • Children's animated film and supplementary publication;
  • Multi-lingual audio-guides;
  • Signage;
  • Development of virtual equipment for interpreting the monuments;
  • Strategic game about the defensive line of the Mondego;
  • Medieval glossary;
  • Tourist tracking system.

As a custodian and promoter of medieval heritage, we are also working on cultural entrepreneurship. The importance of the Network stems from the opportunities that we intend to generate in the area. We intend to create a unique product that contributes to boosting the local economic base. Thus, through another operation, we are working in the following areas:

  • Creating a Guide to Support Cultural Entrepreneurship and respective website;
  • Development of four workshops about cultural entrepreneurship to create meeting opportunities;
  • Creation of three meetings of matching: entrepreneur-investor;
  • Launch of artistic events of historical interpretation, like CASPIRRO 2012;
  • Creating an artistic event recreating the defensive line of the Mondego.

Currently, in addition to co-financed projects, the Action Plan partners are involved in a number of community involvement and revitalization initiatives, which have generated relationships between people and agencies, consolidating forms of joint action in the Network.
