To increase employment opportunities as well as fostering the general idea of sustainable Cultural Heritage of Europe.
Sector Cultural Heritage
In the last decade Cultural Heritage moved more and more into the centre of attention of the European Commission, while the Culture Programme stimulated and invested in European initiatives like Capitals of Culture, the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the European Heritage Label and other. A series of reports like OMC and strategies like European Cultural Heritage Strategy for the 21st Century have been developed and issued, which by now give a rather clear picture where Cultural Europe plans to be heading in the years to come.
The actual challenge now is to act and put things suggested into practice. This pilot project is seen by the applicant as a perfect opportunity to continue several streams of action taken over the last five years – building upon EU projects like MODI-FY, PRO-Heritage, RCIA as well as the European Heritage Label awarded to the Union of Lublin 2014 and to the Imperial Palace Vienna 2016 – and creating a strong sector combining Cultural Heritage & CCIs to the benefit of both and to increase employment opportunities as well as fostering the general idea of sustainable Cultural Heritage of Europe.
