STORM delivers a set of novel predictive models and improved non-invasive and non-destructive methods of survey and diagnosis, for effective prediction of environmental changes and for revealing threats and conditions that could damage Cultural Heritage sites.

Moreover, STORM determines how different vulnerable materials, structures and buildings are affected by different extreme weather events, together with risks associated to climatic conditions of natural hazards, offering improved, effective adaptations and mitigations strategies, systems and technologies.

An integrated system – featuring novel sensors (intra fluorescent and wireless acoustic sensors), legacy systems, state of the art platforms (including LiDAR and UAVs), as well as crowdsourcing techniques – offers applications and services over an open cloud infrastructure.

The system performs risk assessment on natural hazards, taking into account environmental and anthropogenic risks and using Complex Events processing.

STORM provides a cooperation platform for collaboratively collecting and enhancing knowledge, processes and methodologies on sustainable and effective safeguarding and management of European Cultural Heritage.

Results of the project are tested in relevant case studies in five different countries: Italy, Greece, UK, Portugal and Turkey.

Sites and Consortium have been carefully selected as to adequately represent the rich European Cultural Heritage. Associated Partners assist linking the project to other stakeholders and European sites.

The project is carried out by a multidisciplinary team that provides all competences needed to assure the implementation of a functional and effective solution to support every actor involved in the management and preservation of Cultural Heritage sites.
