FINCH Project – along with EU Member States representatives, heritage stakeholders and members of the Commission’s expert group on cultural heritage - has been invited by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture to join an on-line workshop on complementary funding for cultural heritage.

The 2-day workshop - held at the end of January 2021 as announced on FINCH website - has been the occasion to discuss and examine examples of instruments of funding, which are complementary to public support - at local, regional, national and EU level - with the aim of identifying sources of additional funding for cultural heritage and transferable best practices in order to promote its economic sustainability.

In addition to the great opportunity of exchange and learning, this workshop also represented an occasion to disseminate FINCH partnership's good practices - as part of the wide Interreg Europe Policy Learning Database - and to highlight the role of FINCH Regional Stakeholder Groups and FINCH Kindred Projects valuable collaboration activities. 

The takeaways of the 2-day event are available at the following link  while the background paper has been recently published on the Commission’s website and available here for download.
