The role of cultural heritage in socio-economic development and preservation of democratic values

Project description

Conference in Croatia considering cultural heritage

A conference organised in March 2020 by the University of Rijeka in Croatia, as part of the country’s presidency of the Council of the European Union, will discuss an agenda for the development of cultural heritage. One of Europe’s most defining features, cultural heritage represents a sense of belonging and is an economic driver. The EU-funded HERItage project is supporting the conference, which will present the role of universities in promoting and preserving cultural heritage. Moreover, it will review the role of the scientific research community and discuss the challenges and opportunities of digital transformation. Overall, the focus will be on policies promoting cultural heritage and democratic values.
