Regional Heritage Assistance Fund :
Project to create a regional fund of intervention for the heritage (with the Regional Council and registered in the CPER 2007-2013; failure in 2007)

N.B. The 2007-2013 CPER includes a “digitization of the heritage of archives, libraries and museums” component, which complements the regional IPO. This component was part of a project to create a more global regional intervention fund, which would have included acquisitions, restoration, digitisation, valorization; this project was again proposed to the CR by the regional prefect in May 2008
