European Cultural Heritage Programmes

European Programs related to cultural heritage: 

EU institutions recognise the role of cultural heritage as an important resource for Europe in terms of both social inclusion and economic impact. Therefore, the Commission has provided several funding programs to support cultural heritage through:   

– Current Multiannual Financial Framework, which covers the period between 2021 and 2027.
– The previous Multiannual Financial Framework, the EU’s multiannual budget covering the period between 2014 and 2020.
