Cultural heritage and creative resources

CENTRAL EUROPE supports the preservation and use of cultural heritage, such as historic sites and traditions, to foster knowledge, strengthen regional identity and increase the regions’ attractiveness.

The programme also aims to add value to culture, to unleash the inherent creative and innovation potential of central European regions and thereby boost regions' economies.
