The “EDICULA Immersive Event” within EDICULA Erasmus+ project “Educational Digital Innovative CUltural heritage related Learning Activities” opens the discussion to other case studies. Innovative scientific methodologies developed within the emblematic rehabilitation of the Holy Aedicule of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem are marking future trends in the protection of cultural heritage. They do initiate a universal conversation within a holistic approach, merging competence from the scientific fields of architecture, civil engineering, surveying engineering, materials science and engineering, information technology and archaeology, as well as heritage professionals on restoration and conservation, stakeholders, industry representatives and policy makers.
The combined utilization of digital documentation technologies with innovative analytical and non-destructive techniques, numerical, computational and 3D techniques, archaeometric and archaeogene methods, supports the creation of a transdisciplinary multispectral methodology for the sustainable preservation of cultural heritage. Innovation is enhancing and revealing a critical dimension of the preservation of cultural heritage along with social participation and communication.
