Europäisches Kulturerbe - European cultural heritage  >> 

The European Heritage Network (HEREIN) is a permanent information system bringing together government departments responsible for cultural heritage under the umbrella of the Council of Europe. Born of exemplary co-operation between the Council of Europe and the European Commission in 1999, the European Heritage Network has become a reference point for government bodies, professionals, research workers and non-governmental organisations active in this field.  43 countries currently participate in the Network and others may join.

The Council of Europe is also developing a Landscape database – ELCIS - inspired by Herein and this should be available soon. 

The Council of Europe's cultural heritage conventions
The Council of Europe takes Europe-wide action to help states set up systems to protect, manage and develop their cultural assets. A number of basic texts reflect the Council of Europe’s ground-breaking work in the area of cultural heritage.
Conventions
Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society (Faro, 2005)
European Convention for the Protection of the Audiovisual Heritage (Strasbourg, 2001)
Convention for the Protection of the Archaeological Heritage (Valletta, 1992)
Convention for the Protection of the Architectural Heritage (Granada, 1985)
European Cultural Convention (1954) 

 

The HEREIN System is a tool to collect data and information related to financing mechanisms, legislations, documentation systems, integrated conservation strategies and awareness-raising actions among others. This data base is complemented by a unique multilingual HEREIN Thesaurus containing over 500 terms and concepts in the 14 languages presently available.

The HEREIN Network formed by the national coordinators is a tool for dialogue and exchange which facilitates cooperation between ministries and institutions in charge of European heritage management.

HEREIN acts as an ‘observatory’ tool; it follows up the implementation of European heritage conventions, the evolution of policies and the strengthening of the values of heritage for society as a factor of intercultural dialogue and improvement of living conditions.

HEREIN brings together public administrations from 42 Member States responsible for national policies in the field of cultural heritage. It is supported by Voluntary Contributions from several countries and by the "HEREIN AISBL" association.
