This conference aspires at being a virtual discussion forum focused on Heritage, thus addressing its relevance, diversity and social meaning, taking into account a growing, diverse and shifting European population.
With this reality in mind, it is important to foster the understanding of heritage preservation, both tangible and intangible, as a key domain of multidisciplinary collaboration, which draws from the Humanities so as to generate sustainable scientific and technological solutions.
Moreover, it is fundamental to enhance the role of heritage through a multi-layered strategy that encompasses fundamental themes of landscape management, such as settlement organization, health and well-being, as well as intercultural and economic dynamics, such as human rights, tourism or the arts.
This Conference aims at compiling different points of view which will then be included in a document that summarizes the importance of the influence and impact of the Humanities in society while also tackling multidisciplinary dynamics as an education and RD&I strategy for meaningful problem solving.
This document will be presented at the European Humanities Conference, which will be held 5th-7th May 2021, in Portugal, an event co-organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences (CIPSH) and the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), within the scope of the program of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
