WHAT

The Fair is a wonderful occasion to see how the EU is promoting research & innovation in cultural heritage, fostering creativity and new connections across countries. The event will build on the results of the 'Heritage and Innovation' conference and will focus on the next steps and contributions to the EU Action Plan on Cultural Heritage.

We will showcase the latest innovations in cultural heritage, discussing why they are developed and how they can benefit both the society and the market. We will promote stronger ties between R&I, policies and arts. Our aim is to contribute to an open cultural heritage innovation ecosystem in Europe and beyond.

Participants will have the opportunity to join the 'Community of Innovators in Cultural Heritage' and its platform to engage with innovation providers, users and investors.
