Summary:

The EU recognises its Member States' collective cultural heritage both as a European legacy and as a contributor to EU growth and development. That is why, the Horizon 2020 programme was singled out as one of the 'new generation of EU instruments' to safeguard and enhance the EU's cultural heritage. Between 2014 and early 2019, €495 million was invested in Horizon 2020 research actions related to the EU's cultural heritage to achieve this goal, and experts recognise programme’s achievements. The new 2021-2027 Horizon Europe programme should continue and enhance its support as well as contribute to keeping the legacy of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage.

According to Commission data, between 2014 and early 2019, €495 million was invested in Horizon 2020 research actions related to the EU's tangible and intangible cultural heritage. In token of the value attached to cultural heritage as an intrinsic part of the EU's identity and an important element of the EU's international presence, the year 2018 was designated European Year of Cultural Heritage.
