MIREU partner GKZ will conduct a sequence of seminars for identification of Cultural and Industrial Heritage issues, starting with a kick-off at the GKZ premises in Freiberg, Saxony, on 7th June 2018.

The aim of this first seminar is to unite applicants and managers of Heritage sites in order to exchange experience and expertise in increasing regional value, in terms of competing business fields and regional development plans. The seminar also aims to identify bottlenecks in the implementation of World Heritage and the social and industrial indicators which underpin the economic success in the long term. Following the seminar, network potential will be exploited. The networking activities may range from partnering sites to integrating them into the implementation of the MIREU project.

This seminar is addressed to stakeholders in this sector, both from existing World Heritage Sites and those under application, as well as from EU and national projects on industrial and cultural heritage.
