The post-doctoral research into Cultural heritage and sustainable rural development aims at discovering and analysing the impact of cultural heritage on rural areas, local community and society and its role in local sustainable social, economic and cultural development. The research (starting in 2014) is centred around the cultural dimension of rural changes and sustainability, with special focus on the role of cultural heritage. The research collects and analyses local traditions, local produce, customs, built heritage that appear with a new function or content for local communities or outside consumers.
