The practical implications of climate change and its adverse effects on built heritage in Europe is now a widely accepted fact. The project Parnassus has been working for the last 3 years in order to identify and quantify the effects of climate change on heritage structures in specific relation to floods and wind driven rain. The findings of the project are expected to make a considerable contribution on the current body of knowledge in the relevant field of study, as well as enhancing public awareness in Europe.

The aim of this workshop is to launch the basis for a stable network on this topic with researchers outside UK and to disseminate the outcomes of the PARNASSUS project to the academic research community, as well as stakeholders, such as National Trust, English Heritage, insurance companies, local authority conservation officers, Environment Agency, Building Research Establishment, UK Climate Impact Programme, Chief Scientists Office (UK Government).
