ERRIN is part of the successful consortium, led by EUROCITIES, working on the peer-learning scheme on Cultural Heritage for cities and regions. Last week an exclusive briefing session was organised for the Design & Creativity and Tourism WG members, during which Julie Herve, Senior Policy Advisor of EUROCITIES, presented and discussed the ‘Cultural Heritage in Action – Sharing Innovative Solutions for Cities and Regions’ project.
In a couple of weeks, local and regional authorities will have the opportunity to showcase their policies, projects, events or structures that they have developed in the field of Cultural Heritage, linked to 3 topics: participatory governance of cultural heritage, adaptive reuse of heritage buildings, and quality of interventions on cultural heritage. The practices should be inspiring for public authorities and worth disseminating and sharing at European Union level, as they will serve as basis throughout the peer-learning scheme: look at what is taking place in the rural, semi-rural, peripheral and peri-urban areas.
What should you expect?
- Call for good practices (coming soon, open for 30 days)
- Catalogue of 30 good practices, widely circulated and consulted, including within the EU institutions

We are pleased to inform you that the call can be filled in “on behalf of” a local and regional administration, for example a university or a local/regional stakeholder implementing the practice. In such cases, you will be asked to provide a written endorsement by a representative of the local or regional administration at the origin of the practice. UK applicants are welcome to respond to the call.
