The European Heritage Hub is a two-year pilot project launched in May 2023 by a consortium of 20 partners, led by Europa Nostra and co-funded by the European Union, to set up a permanent and autonomous heritage hub in Europe.

The project brings together a large array of heritage stakeholders and initiatives, responding to the need for a more structured cooperation and coordination at all levels of governance, from local to European and international.

Empowering Europe's heritage movement: bridging sustainability, innovation and inclusivity

The launch of the Hub comes at a strategic time for Europe. Using the green, digital and social triple transformation of Europe as the overarching theme for all its activities, the project builds the capacity for action and advocacy of the European heritage sector to support the transition towards a more sustainable, innovative and inclusive future.

The European Heritage Hub also aims at building meaningful bridges between regions, countries and communities beyond the European Union and as such extends its activities to EU neighbouring countries in the Western Balkans, the Caucasus, Ukraine and Moldova.

Over the past decade, the contribution of cultural heritage to many key policy priorities of the European Union has been clearly demonstrated. The Hub builds on the success of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 and the ensuing European Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage, an ambitious set of 60 actions established by the European Commission. It will also carry on the legacy of the European Year of Youth 2022 and the European Year of Skills 2023.
