Summer School of Illucidare Heritage and Innovation

The idea that heritage and innovations are generally contrary to our long-term thinking about the past and its applications. However, over the last decade heritage and innovation - i.e. the past and future, old and new, physical and digital, tradition and change - gradually ceased to be considered conflicting concepts. Instead, they were considered to support each other.
