In particular, the cooperation projects should aim at:
- Reinforcing a sense of belonging to a common European space;
- Promoting cultural heritage as a source of inspiration for artistic contemporary creation and innovation and strengthen the interaction between the cultural heritage sector and other cultural and creative sectors.
Cultural Heritage is a sign or a symbol created by, or given meaning by human activity, that is intentionally protected, conserved or revived, instead of being left to natural decay, oblivion, or destruction. The purpose is the transmission to future generations of its values (i.e. cultural, historical, aesthetic, archaeological, scientific, ethnological, anthropological value), which are considered relevant by a community or group of reference.
Within the context of this action, cultural heritage should be understood as encompassing a broad spectrum of resources inherited from the past in all forms and aspects -tangible, intangible and digital (born digital and digitised), including monuments, sites, landscapes, skills, practices, knowledge and expressions of human creativity, as well as collections conserved and managed by public and private bodies such as museums, libraries and archives. Cultural heritage also includes film heritage.
In any event, projects supporting physical interventions on monuments, sites or landscapes are not co- financed within the scope of the present Calls. Projects are encouraged to consider within their timeline highly visible activities in their first year to mark the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage. In assessing applications under this category, the Commission will favour projects that do not only focus on awareness raising/communication activities, but which will have an enduring effect and are designed to be sustainable beyond the life of the project.
