The European Heritage Label is one of the most valuable EU initiatives to strengthen European citizens’ sense of belonging to the Union. The focus on the European dimension of cultural heritage sites and the common values they represent is a distinctive feature of this label. The current number of EHL sites (48) is expected to grow in the coming years; it is therefore necessary to put in place measures that aim to raise the capacities of the EHL sites as well as to enhance the visibility and impact of the EHL in general.
This call will support a single organisation or a single consortium of organisations, with a special focus on cultural heritage and capacity building, which are active in the creative and cultural sectors or running capacity-building and promotional work.
The general objective of the call is to support the development of a European Heritage Label umbrella organisation that will establish networking, collaboration, training and opportunities among the EHL Stakeholders. This EHL umbrella organisation will be key to ensuring the sustainability of the European Heritage Label. This call for proposals will contribute to the implementation of the EHL general objectives of “strengthening European Citizens’ sense of belonging to the Union, in particular that of young people, based on shared values and elements of European history and cultural heritage, as well as an appreciation of national and regional diversity; and strengthening intercultural dialogue”.
The umbrella organisation will support the range of EHL stakeholders and their synergies with bodies active in the field of heritage, cultural and creative sectors together with educational sectors.
The available call budget is 3.000.000 euros
Deadline: 5 October 2022 (17.00 CET, Brussels).
