An International Academic Partnership under the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange

Our international research project ”Cultural Heritage of Small Homelands” (2018-2022) is financed by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange – International Academic Partnerships. The primary objective of this programme is to work out long-lasting solutions with regard to international research cooperation, conducted within International Academic Partnerships.
The project is based on the concept of cultural heritage of “small homelands” – the heritage that has survived in original animals species, plants species and landscape to this day, constituting a unique wealth and value. The project’s main objective is to describe cultural heritage preserved in small local communities, as illustrated by the example of the Malopołska region. Another objective is to find, describe, and possibly evaluate similar small, particular ecosystems elsewhere in Europe and the world.    
The project endeavors to prove the thesis that promoting original elements of cultural heritage may contribute to the dynamic development of new regional products.

The added value of the project, implemented within the framework of international cooperation, will be the identification of local elements of cultural heritage, both material and spoken. This shall support the promotion of traditional products, getting to know the opinions of local communities in different countries, and protecting cultural values.

Project ‘Cultural Heritage of Small Homelands’ no. PPI/APM/2018/1/00010/U/001 is financed by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange as a part of the International Academic Partnerships.
