The current projects of the team aim at experimenting with new registration methodologies (of material or documentary culture), reassessing preservation guidelines and different activation tools (functional, potential and sensorial) about industrial heritage, based on multi- and interdisciplinary theoretical and methodological perspectives. It starts with various disciplinary understandings (history, archeology, urban, architectural, anthropological, tourist) to deal with different purposes concerning railway goods and places: identification, correlation, application of new technologies, protection instruments and public policies.
