ICOMOS Germany's Plans for Conferences on the Occasion of the German EU Council Presidency
In this context, ICOMOS Germany is planning to participate with two public events, firstly with a workshop on the concretization of the "European Quality Principles for EU-funded Interventions with Potential Impact upon Cultural Heritage" (Karlsruhe, July 2020), and secondly with a conference at the denkmal fair in Leipzig on archaeological World Heritage sites and their threats (November 2020).
As soon as the funding of the conferences has been secured and further formalities have been clarified, we will send out save-the-dates and make the conference programmes available here and via our mailing list.
