European Parliament Hearing:
"Cultural Heritage, research and sustainable development"


Brussels, 6 February 2006

Cultural heritage research, the core topic of this hearing organised at the initiative of Prof. Dr Cristina Gutiérrez-Cortines MEP, will be part of the "Environmental Technologies" section of the Cooperation programme elaborated under the 7th Framework Programme for Research (2007-2013).

The hearing was an occasion for the European Construction Technology Platform (ECTP), to which EUROCITIES contributes, to present its work and vision for a common strategic agenda on cultural heritage research. The setting-up up of technology platforms was encouraged by the European Commission in order to establish innovative partnerships between different types of stakeholders, both from the private and public sector. Within the ECTP, two Focus Groups are particularly interesting for EUROCITIES activities: the Focus Area "Cities and Buildings", and the Focus Area "Cultural Heritage".

Successful experiences of European cities dealing with different approaches of cultural policies will be presented during specific panel sessions and special attention will be given to Cultural Festivals in European Cities.
