The IPCHS coordinates and participates in various international and domestic project and promotional campaigns. Special attention is given to young people.


The project deals with the Claustra Alpium Iuliarum (CAI) monument, the largest construction and military defence system in Slovenia and Croatia. The monument is comparable to other similar Roman defence systems that are already on the UNESCO World Heritage List under the Frontiers of Roman Empire label. Entering the CAI monument on the UNESCO heritage list would bring about the better promotion of the monument and also contribute to the economic and social development of the wider region in both countries.

Forte Cultura

The capitalising on fortified cultural heritage in Central Europe for the sustainable development and competitiveness of cities and regions is an international project that has studied the fortress heritage in Central Europe. In Europe, fortified buildings and systems have only relinquished their original function around twenty years ago and the majority of them have not been included in planned protection programmes. That is why numerous fortified buildings that marked and influenced life in the past two centuries are now deteriorating, not only as cultural heritage sites, but also in the sense of their commercial potential.


CULTH:EX represents European cooperation in cultural heritage, a cross-border project of Slovenia and Austria and the continuation of the Castles, Manors and Construction Culture project – “Villas, Stately Homes and Castles”. The aim of the project was the development of sustainable strategies to improve the attitudes of cultural heritage property owners towards their own heritage, raising awareness among the local people about the meaning of heritage, bringing together experts from both sides of the border and promoting the sustainable use of cultural heritage. 

Cradles of European Culture (CEC)

The purpose of the project was the collaboration between partners from nine European countries which are active in the field of cultural heritage conservation, as well as to emphasise the value of Europe’s cultural history in today’s modern European society. The goal of the project was to connect the processes of forming an identity, a sense of belonging, and intercultural dialogue through the valorisation and understanding of our past.


The Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia participated as a partner on the European AthenaPlus project that is part of the CIP Best Practice Networks (BPN) programme. The project was initiated in March 2013 and concluded in August 2015. The project group comprised 40 partners from 21 EU member states.

CAMAA (Centre for North Adriatic Military Architecture)

The CAMAA project was carried out as as part of the European Programme for Cross-border Co-operation Slovenia-Italy 2007–2013. It was set up with the view to establish cross-border networks to maintain and evaluate military architecture, shared sustainable management as an upgrade and strengthening of the already executed shared European projects. As part of its activities, the IPCHS participated by preparing the legal aspects of the management model (B. Šantej) and creating a conservation plan for the walls on Kubed and the northern town walls of Koper (M. Zupančič, J. Bizjak, M. Stokin).
