Jul 13 – Jul 14 all-day

Message from organisers on 23/03/2020:
“Due to the current pandemic, no postponement of theplanned kick-off event PROMOTING EUROPE’S CULTURAL HERITAGE AND CULTURALDIVERSITY – WHO? HOW? WITH WHOM? is planned for the EU Presidency of theFederal Republic of Germany. Rather, we are currently examining alternative formsof communication (webinars, video conferences, etc.) in case a personal meetingof experts and interested parties from all over Europe in Karlsruhe would notbe possible or not justifiable due to continued travel restrictions or healthrisks.”

The expert discussion is intended to provide information and knowledge transfer onmonument promotion programs and other heritage-related funding tools at theEuropean level and at national and regional levels. Also, the meeting is toprovide a professional statement from the conservation and restoration partyand to articulate expectations from the conservator’s and restorer’s sideregarding the continuation of funding structures and selection criteria ofpublic and non-profit grant programs.

Thank you to everyone who submitted an abstract; we had a very enthusiasticresponse. As soon as the COVID-19 crisis is over we’ll investigate running aconference, perhaps again in Angkor. We will also see if we can do avirtual event of some kind this year; we will keep in touch. “
