European Heritage Policies

National workshop in Greece


A second HEREIN national workshop, co-organized with the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, was held in Athens on the 1st and 2nd of December, 2015. The invited National Coordinators from Switzerland and Hungary, Mr. Martin (Swiss Federal Office of Culture) and Ms. Viragos (Forster Gyula National Centre for Cultural Heritage Management), shared their experiences from the HEREIN network with Ms. Benissi (newly appointed National Coordinator for Greece). The workshop helped in raising awareness of the different Greek institutional actors involved in the preservation of the heritage concerning the HEREIN’s potential. Furthermore, it contributed to enhance and to enthuse the HEREIN network, as well as to support the ongoing work aiming at enriching the database with information on the Greek heritage policy. HEREIN brings a practical contribution to the current mechanisms and practices for good heritage management. A detailed report and the presentations from the workshop will be available on the server soon.
