Terra Mosana

Terra Mosana is a euregional project aiming to investigate, digitalize and present the shared history of the Meuse-Rhine Euregion. Researchers from MUSTS and the Maastricht Centre for Arts and Culture, Conservation and Heritage (MACCH) contribute to the project. Over three years, various cities and regions, museums and universities will jointly develop digital narratives through 3D modeling and on-site augmented reality connecting cultural heritage sites in Aachen, Jülich, Leopoldsburg, Liège, Maastricht, and Tongeren.

MACCH is responsible for the Work Package on Sustainability, coordinated by Vivian van Saaze. MACCH-affiliated researchers from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Law investigate the language development of the Euregio (Leonie Cornips), legal frameworks of cross-border cooperation in the field of digital heritage (Ana Ramalho). In collaboration with ITEM (Institute for Transnational and Euregional cross border cooperation and Mobility), the possibilities for a euregional culture card are being explored (Hildegard Schneider and Anna de Jong).

From MUSTS, Sally Wyatt is contributing expertise towards responsible citizen participation in the creation of digital narratives about the region’s history, together with other FASoS colleagues, Costas Papadopoulus and Eslam Nofal.

Terra Mosana is an initiative of the University of Liège and was launched at the Palace of the Prince-Bishops of Liège on 24 October 2018. The Terra Mosana project is being executed within the context of Interreg V-A Euregion MeuseRhine, and is financed by the European Regional Development Fund, the Walloon Region, the Provinces of Limburg (in both the Netherlands and Belgium) and the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The total budget is €4,607,364.
