The ISTER Project

Carnuntum is a project partner in the ISTER project (Interreg Danube Transnational Program). The aim of the project is the visualization and revitalization of the ancient road network, which was developed by the Romans along the Danube region, as well as the design of eco-cultural routes from it.

ISTER is an Interreg Danube Transnational Programme which firstly addresses the challenge of Roman heritage discontinuity. The project tackles the territorial dimension of the Roman Routes, as a contiguous transnational element that passes Danube Region states’ borders and provides a relevant scale for exchange and joint development. Therefore, ISTER’s main objective focuses on rediscovering and revitalizing the ancient Roman Roads Network along the Danube Region as a key driver in promoting territorial development based on sustainable use of cultural and natural heritage. To increase local attractiveness, ISTER is leveraging on three key assets:

  1. Adopting a multi-layered governance chain aimed at strengthening knowledge framework and institutional capacities of Danube Region actors through capacity building and collective knowledge mapping;
  2. Using advanced tools and technologies for enhancing non-physical accessibility, visibility and valorisation of Roman routes and settlements network, laying the foundation for a thematic cultural route based on Roman heritage with a narrative function, reviving ancient assets and promoting non-renewable and fragile, but yet unexplored and unexploited Roman legacy;
  3. Acquiring the shift from old policy approaches (protection through isolation) to new, integrative methods for improving the policy and regulatory framework in Danube crossed-regions.

16 Partners and 10 Associated Partners put through their energy and knowledge to develop an eco-cultural corridor for pedestrians on the layer of Roman Routes and Settlements, starting from Porolissum (RO/SJ) to the spring of Danube (DE) or simply to the “perpetually beautiful”  Rome. The duration of the project lasts from 2020 to 2022.
