The “Network for Research on Cultural Landscapes in Spain”, within the Networks of Excellence program of the State R&D&I Plan, develops a program of activities on specific aspects of the Spanish experience in the study and management of cultural landscapes, promoting the internationalization of the knowledge obtained and strengthening the national structure of research in the field.

The scientific framework of the Network is the National Plan of Cultural Landscapes (2012), promoted by the Cultural Heritage Institute of Spain of the MECD. The specific objectives focus on:

  1. Promoting the knowledge of Spanish cultural landscapes.
  2. To improve the methods of documentation of this cultural property by means of digital and cartographic treatment techniques, including visualization, modeling and three-dimensional simulation procedures.
  3. To discuss strategic actions oriented to favor a creative and dynamic management of cultural landscapes, with special emphasis on their instrumentalization in territorial development policies.
