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.
ICOMOS Estonia recently hosted the annual meeting of the ICOMOS Europe Group in Tallinn from 18 to 22 June. The event brought together Committees Presidents and experts from 30 European countries as well as President Teresa Patricio and four members of the Board. In addition,10 emerging professionals attended the meeting.

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.
