The European Heritage Awards | Europa Nostra Awards aim to identify, recognise and champion best practices in the conservation of cultural heritage as well as innovative developments and knowledge in the care and promotion of tangible and intangible cultural heritage. Through the power of example, the scheme enables the exchange and transfer of experiences and skills across borders and between communities in Europe and beyond. It increases the visibility and understanding of the multiple values of cultural heritage for Europe’s society, economy, environment and culture.

We encourage you to submit your application and share good practices in the heritage sector from Central and Eastern Europe!

Europe’s most prestigious heritage awards were launched by the European Commission in 2002 and have been run in partnership with Europa Nostra ever since. The Awards are supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
