The Work Plan for Culture 2019-2022 invites the European Commission to organise workshops in order to identify new sources of funding for cultural heritage and transferable best practices in order to promote its economic sustainability. Additionally, this topic has been highlighted in the special report on “EU investments in cultural sites: a topic that deserves more focus and coordination”, by the European Court of Auditors recommending that the European Commission “encourages the use of private funds to safeguard Europe’s cultural heritage”.
The First meeting of the European Commission expert group on cultural heritage was held on 15th and 16th October 2019. Jermina Stanojev, researcher from Uppsala University, as a selected member of the expert group, presented the CLIC project.
The CLIC project has actively participated in the Fair of European Innovators in Cultural Heritage held in Brussels, the Egg, on 15-16 November 2018, launched by the European Commission and aimed at promoting EU funded research and innovation projects in the field of creative culture.
