“Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe: Towards a European Index for Cultural Heritage” (CHCFE) is a two-year project funded by the EU Culture Programme (2007-2013) that aims to raise greater awareness on the multiple benefits of cultural heritage and present policy recommendations for tapping into heritage’s full potential. As the CHCFE project gains momentum analysing existing evidence of the many impacts of cultural heritage in Europe, the project consortium would like to present you with the latest project news and updates.
