Nowadays, Heritage Buildings’ areas of knowledge and applications have been developed without a global seamless integration view. Collaboration targeting the Heritage Buildings domain is actually focused on peer-to-peer partnerships, with a clear lack of integra- tion and non-global interoperability. This imposes several constrains on Heritage Buildings, not only on scientific research but also on their daily operation. Today, the main challenge is to overcome these confined collaborations, moving towards a global integrated scientific, techno- logical and social multidisciplinary approach. A fundamental pre-requisite for good decision- making about the future of Heritage Buildings is, first, knowledge and, then, knowledge sharing. The objective of i2MHB Action is to create a pan-European open network, to promote synergies between Heritage Conservators and Science's specialists, industrial stakeholders and re- search/education players, to achieve a unified common understanding and operation in the Her- itage Buildings’ domain, integrating multidisciplinary expertise, technology and know-how through a novel and independent global framework.
