Cultural heritage research to be recognised

The European Commission is to dedicate 2018 as the Year of Cultural Heritage, in a move designed to recognise conservation, research and infrastructure efforts in the field.

In an announcement on 30 August, the Commission said that plan would help raise awareness of the social and economic importance of cultural heritage at a time when many world sites are being destroyed in conflict zones. Cultural heritage plays a strong role in economic growth in Europe, the Commission said.

“The 2018 Year of Cultural Heritage will be an occasion to highlight the importance of European culture, and what the EU can do regarding conservation, digitisation, infrastructure, research and the development of skills,” the statement read.
