The European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 Takes Off

The celebrations for the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage have been officially launched earlier this month. The purpose of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to raise awareness of the social and economic importance of cultural heritage. Thousands of initiatives and events across Europe will provide the possibility to involve citizens from all backgrounds. The aim is to reach out to the widest possible audience, in particular children and young people, local communities and people who are rarely in touch with culture, to promote a common sense of ownership. Projects and initiatives implemented in EU Member States, municipalities and regions will be complemented by transnational projects funded by the EU. Conscious about the importance of chemistry to the European cultural heritage, 2018 will also mark the starting of the EuCheMS Historical Landmarks award, whose call nominations is now online.
