European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards 2021
Europa Nostra, the leading heritage network in Europe, and the European Commission have recently launched the Call for Entries to the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards 2021. This long-standing awards scheme, Europe’s highest honour in the field, was established in 2002 by the European Commission and has been run by Europa Nostra ever since. It aims to identify and celebrate best practices in the heritage field across Europe each year.
In 2021, two ILUCIDARE Special Prizes will also be awarded from among the submitted applications to the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards. ILUCIDARE is a project funded by Horizon 2020 with the aim of establishing an international network promoting heritage as a resource for innovation and international cooperation. The European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards will contribute to ILUCIDARE by identifying, promoting and facilitating the upscaling of best practices in cultural heritage-led innovation and international relations. The deadline for submissions is 1 October 2020 (date of sending). Europa Nostra will also host a webinar about preparing a successful application which will take place on Thursday, 9 July from 17:00 until 18:00. Registration for the webinar is via this link.
