The final results of the European cooperation project “Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe” (CHCFE) will be presented on 12 June 2015 in Oslo, Norway. The CHCFE conference, which will be held at the Domus Media of the University of Oslo, is one of the main events of the 2015 European Heritage Congress organised by Europa Nostra, a CHCFE project partner. All the CHCFE project partners will be in Oslo for the presentation of the conclusions of the project. This follows two years of collaboration to map and analyse the multiple benefits of cultural heritage. On this occasion, project partners will also make policy recommendations aimed at tapping into heritage’s full potential. The event will be attended by heritage professionals, academics, researchers, policy-makers and high-level representatives from EU institutions and Member States.

To close the day dedicated to the “Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe” project, Europa Nostra is organising a networking cruise along the Oslo fjord on-board the Christian Radich, a three mast sailing ship built in 1937.

The European Heritage Awards Ceremony is the absolute highlight of the  European Heritage Congress in Oslo (10-14 June). The winners of the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards 2015 will be honoured on the evening of 11 June at a high-profile event at the Oslo City Hall, internationally-known for hosting the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. The congress will feature a workshop dedicated to Youth and Cultural Heritage, as well as visits to some of the main cultural attractions in Oslo, such as the world-famous Viking Ship Museum. Europa Nostra’s Industrial and Engineering Heritage Committee will organise an excursion to Kistefos Traesliberi, Norway’s largest grained wood pulp mill founded in 1889.  Many other events will be held during the congress.
