This European Commission has designation 2018 as the European Year of Cultural Heritage, and has undertaken a number of events and celebrations to emphasise the impact that a deeper understanding of cultural legacies of different member states can have on European cohesion.  By funding 29 projects celebrating European cultural heritage, the EU aims to promote discussion of Europe’s common history and values.

Funding for the projects will be allocated through Creative Europe, an EU program which supports the European cultural and creative sectors with a budget of 1.46 billion Euros for the period 2014-2020, which is set to increase in 2021. The programme also supports the EU Prize for Cultural Heritage and the European Heritage Label as part of its broader mandate.
