“Heritage Counts” International Conference in Leuven

3-6 February 2015 at Kasteelpark Arenberg in Leuven, Belgium

The Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (RLICC), a member of the Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe project, is organising its Thematic Week 2015 on the topic “Heritage Counts – International conference on the economic, social, environmental and cultural impact of heritage” from 3-6 February 2015 in Leuven, Belgium.

The 2015 Thematic Week of the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation, deals with the economic, social, environmental and cultural impact of heritage. The aim is to provide an international overview of discourse, strategies and case studies. Theoretical reflections and best practices will be dealt with according to thematic sessions in order to highlight potentialities, gained advantages and difficulties encountered in the different steps of measuring the impact of heritage. In order to gather and present this insight, RLICC invited academics, researchers and heritage stakeholders to respond to the conference’s “Heritage Counts” Call for Papers (the deadline was 1 December 2014).

This edition of the Thematic Week grew out of the valorisation actions implemented within the cooperation project ‘Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe’, funded by the EU Culture Programme (2007-2013).

The Opening Day is co-organised by Europa Nostra and will take place on 3 February (14.00-17.00).
