There are 44 ICOMOS National Committees in Europe. Within the informal framework of the ICOMOS Europe Group, these Committees cooperate bilaterally, multilaterally, at sub-regional and regional level – and actively participate in ICOMOS’ international activities, in particular with the International Scientific Committees (for whom many Committees have national mirror Scientific Committees). The Europe Group holds an annual meeting, accompanied by a scientific conference and side-events, hosted on a rotational basis by one of the Committees, and a working meeting during the ICOMOS General Assemblies.
Recommendations of the ICOMOS Europe Group on the damage and loss of Ukraine's cultural heritage as a result of the invasion of the country
On 8 June, at the meeting of the Europe Group in Krakow, Poland, the participants unanimously approved new recommendations, which can be found here.
Since 24 February, Ukraine's cultural heritage has been severely threatened and many sites have been destroyed. ICOMOS has been closely monitoring the situation and has provided a variety of assistance, ranging from monitoring and documentation to the provision of equipment and funding.
ICOMOS has published a new version of the European Quality Principles for EU-funded Interventions with Potential Impact upon Cultural Heritage. This new version has been updated based on the feedback from partners and stakeholders. This document provides guidance on quality principles for stakeholders engaged in EU-funded interventions that could impact cultural heritage, mainly built heritage and cultural landscapes.
ICOMOS is pleased to share the document European Quality Principles for EU-funded Interventions with Potential Impact upon Cultural Heritage, available for download here and at http://openarchive.icomos.org/2083/
(A new version of this document, dated November 2020, revised and augmented, is available at: http://openarchive.icomos.org/id/eprint/2436)
This document stems from the work of an expert group assembled by the ICOMOS, under the mandate of the European Commission and in the framework of the flagship EU Initiative of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, “Cherishing heritage: developing quality standards for EU-funded projects that have the potential to impact on cultural heritage”.
