Cultural heritage

Building on the European Year of Cultural Heritage in 2018, the rich and diverse Cultural Heritage across the EU shines evidence on the role that universities have played in the creation and cohesion of European identities. The Una Europa partners have each contributed to the historical development of the cities in which they are embedded and play an important role in safeguarding important historical-artistic heritage. Their study and research programs promote interdisciplinary collaboration, in response to an increased demand for training in research and management of Cultural Heritage assets. As an interdisciplinary study area, Cultural Heritage contributes to understanding identities and to promote cohesion in communities disrupted by change and economic instability.

Several initiatives are building up within Una Europa around this strategic area, including the develpment of ambitious and innovative educational formats such as

  • UNA Europa Joint Doctorate in Cultural Heritage (creating a Doctoral Space, including UNA Europa PhD Workshops, PhD networking for generic skills, joint research projects): find out all about the application process here
  • UNA Europa Lifelong Learning Certificate in Cultural Heritage (flexible, blended/online short programmes for professionals awarded with a micro-credential to be defined within the alliance)
  • UNA Europa Chair in Cultural Heritage
