EHL Network Project

Network of sites awarded with the European Heritage Label

Ruropean Heritage Label Network

In 2013 the EU Commission started the European Heritage Label (EHL) as an initiative of several national governments to improve the knowledge of European history and the role and values of the EU. The purpose of the European Heritage Label (EHL) is to emphasis a common European history, to strengthen the feeling of belonging to the Union among all European citizens, turning previous borders into bridges. In addition, taking advantage of the diversity that characterizes European culture, to stimulate intercultural dialogue and to still create a sense of being part of a united Europe.

The main goal of the EHL@N project is therefore to give (higher) visibility and reinforce the idea of

  • a common European culture: rich, flourishing, diverse; built on and through a long shared history,
  • a shared heritage which helps to define common values and eventually a shared identity for European citizens,
  • the integration of those values defining the European Union project and making them attractive for all, especially for young people.
  • finally, supporting quality and sustainable growth through capacity building measures and audience development, combining the enhancement of cultural heritage with the encouragement of contemporary creation and creativity.

In order to achieve those goals as well as to fulfil the mission that the EHL sites have defined for their cooperation, the network shall accomplish the following objectives:

  • to develop an appropriate framework/network structure, establish mission statement and ensure sustainability
  • to strengthen the existing brand EHL using common CD and utilise the label brand
  • to develop and maintain an engaging multilingual website for the general public
  • to disseminate, communicate and market the network project as well as the network – by creating and initiating models, tools and means to improve the visibility of each site and the future of the entire network
  • develop and maintain a support website for EHL network and sites, containing information about cooperation, education, exchange programmes and joint activities as well as funding opportunities
  • to strengthen co-operation between EHL sites, through common conferences and events, exchange of best practice, project ideas and training offers
  • to support sites in order to meet the requirements of monitoring procedure of EU Commission
  • to identify and promote the key values common to the EHL sites as well as Europe as a whole
  • to support EHL sites in developing individual and/or joint project ideas

With EHL@N sites can rely on a strong support system, offering quality information, practical tools and means as well as useful services for prosperity and long-term success, which is going to benefit all of Europe.
