The Euregio Meuse Rhine (EMR) is an area characterised by the influence of the rivers Rhine and Meuse, on the border area between northeastern Belgium (Wallonia, Flanders-Limburg), southern Netherlands (Limburg) and western Germany (Rhineland). Allied partner-cities within Terra Mosana are Aachen, Beringen, Genk, Jülich, Leopoldsburg, Liège, Maastricht and Tongeren. The shared history of this region can be recognized for instance in the Roman period (e.g. army-roads, Villas and villages), the period of early Christianity (e.g. churches and monasteries), by medieval warfare, and by trade and commerce before the French revolution in 1789. In 1815 the new states were defined and our earlier common history, became a split history. But even during WWI and WWII the Euregio had a shared history.
This is the common ground Terra Mosana wants to investigate by developing new digitally enhanced strategies for communicating this history to the public. The Terra Mosana project, is being executed within the context of Interreg V-A Euregion MeuseRhine, and is financed by the European Regional Development Fund, the Walloon Region, the Provinces of Limburg (NL and B) and the Land of North Rhine-Westphalia.
By filling this questionnaire, the Terra Mosana team wants to gain insight into the historic themes that the inhabitants and visitors of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine find most interesting to see developed as part of this project. Based on your answers, we will define more precisely the focus of the project and make sure that it meets the interests of the inhabitants. Although some choices have been already made, Terra Mosana can still define what monuments will be digitized and which stories will be presented.
The questionnaire consists of 4 clusters of questions and it will take maximum 10 minutes to complete.
The completed questionnaires will be stored on a central e-mail account (email@example.com), to be processed anonymously by members of the University of Leuven (the public governance institute), Maastricht Centre for Arts and Culture, Conservation and Heritage (MACCH), and the municipality of Maastricht. The data will be stored for the duration of the project (end May 2021) and deleted afterwards.
