CHEurope: Critical Heritage Studies and the Future of Europe

Horizon 2020 logo

Funded under the Horizon 2020 call for proposals for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks, CHEurope (Critical Heritage Studies and the Future of Europe: Towards an integrated, interdisciplinary and transnational training model in cultural heritage research and management) will focus on developing a new integrated theoretical and methodological framework to enhance academic and professional training and open future job opportunities in cultural heritage preservation, management and promotion.

Bringing together a European network of 8 academic and 21 heritage and museum partner organisations, the training programme will fund 15 PhD studentships to undertake practice-based research in partner institutions that connect students to their future job markets and publics.

The programme will combine theoretical and instrumental knowledge at a transnational and interdisciplinary level, through a series of research seminars, summer schools and secondments, beginning in the 2016/17 academic year.
