|This international conference on the economic, social, environmental and cultural impact of immovable heritage will take place from 3-6 February 2015 in Leuven, Belgium. Organised by the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (RLICC) at KU Leuven in collaboration with Europa Nostra, this event will bring together European policymakers and international researchers involved in cultural heritage. This edition of the RLICC’s yearly Thematic Week grew out of the valorisation actions implemented within the Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe project.
“Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe: Towards a European Index for Cultural Heritage”(CHCFE) is a two-year project funded by the EU Culture Programme (2007-2013) that aims to raise greater awareness on the multiple benefits of cultural heritage and present policy recommendations for tapping into heritage’s full potential. As the CHCFE project gains momentum analysing existing evidence of the many impacts of cultural heritage in Europe, the project consortium would like to present you with the latest project news and updates.
