The European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards were launched by the European Commission in 2002 and have been run by Europa Nostra ever since. They celebrate and promote best practices related to heritage conservation, research, management, volunteering, education and communication. In this way, they contribute to a stronger public recognition of cultural heritage as a strategic resource for Europe’s society, economy and environment. The awards are funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
The deadline to submit an application for the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards 2021 is 1 October 2020.
