Under what conditions is improvement of infrastructure and purchase of equipment eligible under thematic objective 3 "Promotion of Local Culture and Preservation of Historical Heritage"?
- An object, where the infrastructure works are planned under the project, must appear on a heritage list;
- Improvement of infrastructure and purchase of equipment may be eligible if a building is not included into lists of heritage objects, however, it hosts cultural or historical valuable items or collections and improvement of infrastructure or equipment is necessary to ensure better storage and exposition conditions;
- Improvement of infrastructure and purchase of equipment may be eligible if a building is not included into lists of heritage objects, however, valuable activities of local culture take place in its premises (e.g. folk music rehearsals, handicraft masterclasses, etc.).
- In all of the abovementioned cases the improvement of infrastructure and purchase of equipment must be well justified and follow the rationale of economic efficiency (buying and renovating must be more efficient than renting premises or equipment). N.B. that the chapter 2.1.4. of the Guidelines for Applicants and Beneficiaries mentions "investment-driven projects which are based on artificial cooperation in order to implement the investments" as non-supported projects.
