EuCheMS responded to the European Commission’s consultation on the evaluation of the European Heritage Label Action. With input from the EuCheMS Working Party on Chemistry for Cultural Heritage and the EuCheMS Working Party on the History of Chemistry, we emphasised the fact that that there are still too few sites that recognise the role played by chemistry in the European construction project – especially in a time when the divide between citizens and science appears to be widening. We moreover highlighted the crucial role that chemistry plays in the very protection and conservation of our shared cultural makeup. We reached out to the Commission by inviting them to learn more on our own EuCheMS Historical Landmarks Award, whose results will be revealed this summer.
