“Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe” project to receive a grant from EC

Europa Nostra is very proud to announce that its project proposal “Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe: Towards an European Index for Cultural Heritage” has been selected, on 28 February 2013, amongst the 4 projects (out of 17 submitted proposals) to receive a grant in the framework of the Culture Programme (2007-2013) / Budgetary year 2013 under Strand 3.2 – Cooperation projects between organisations involved in cultural policy analysis.
The official legal commitment will be established upon signature of a Grant Agreement between Europa Nostra, coordinator of the project, and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.

“Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe: Towards an European Index for Valuing Cultural Heritage” was submitted by Europa Nostra in partnership with 5 other organisations, ENCATC (European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centres, Belgium), Heritage Europe-EAHTR (European Association of Historic Towns and Regions, UK), The International Cultural Centre (Krakow, Poland), The Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (KU Leuven, Belgium) and The Heritage Alliance (associate partner, UK), in November 2012.

This project will gather, analyse, consolidate and widely disseminate the existing data on the impact of cultural heritage on society and the economy. It will result in an European mapping of the evidence-based research that has already been carried out at the European, national, regional, local and/or sectoral levels. It aims to raise greater awareness on the multiple benefits of cultural heritage and present policy recommendations for tapping into the full potential of heritage.
