Europa Nostra, the leading heritage network in Europe, and the European Commission have recently launched the Call for Entries to the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards 2020. 

This long-standing awards scheme, Europe’s highest honour in the field, was established in 2002 by the European Commission and has been run by Europa Nostra ever since. It aims to identify and celebrate best practices in the heritage field across Europe each year. 

In 2020 and 2021, two new ILUCIDARE Special Prizes will also be awarded from among the submitted applications to the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards. ILUCIDARE is a project funded by Horizon 2020 with the aim of establishing an international network promoting heritage as a resource for innovation and international cooperation

The European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards will contribute to ILUCIDARE by identifying, promoting and facilitating the upscaling of best practices in cultural heritage-led innovation and diplomacy.
