The scope of the conference is to exchange opinions and acquired knowledge between experts regarding the preservation of the cultural and historical value of the European heritage, to answer questions about the preservation of Europe’s historical cities, archaeological sites, natural landscapes and integrated aspects of intangible heritage and to discuss principles and policies for their sustainable management.
