Abstract

The protection of the European Cultural Heritage is an important issue affecting all Member States of the European Union. Increasing deterioration of its materials - be it stone, brick, leather, paper, wood, paintings, metals etc. - is causing great concern throughout the Union.
Atmospheric pollution, urbanisation, tourism or inappropriate conservation treatments all play a part.
Since environmental effects have no frontiers, the Member States have everything to gain by combining their efforts and resources to evaluate common knowledge and strategies for protecting their cultural goods, while contributing to the cohesion of the Union and their quality of life.
