The European Heritage Heads Forum Dublin 2015

The European Heritage Heads Forum (EHHF) was founded following an initiative of English Heritage in 2006 - it celebrated its 10th anniversary this year during the annual meeting in Dublin on 20-22 May 2015. The EHHF is an informal professional network that brings together the heads of the European state heritage authorities (e.g. built heritage, landscapes, archaeology) to share knowledge and ideas and promote consistency in the management of the historic environment in the 21st century. The heads are mostly the directors-general of the departments in charge of the conservation of immovable heritage within the national relevant ministries (e.g. Ministry of Culture).

Discussion centres on emerging trends, political engagement, European legislation and the scope of international heritage protection and how these affect national heritage policies and impact upon historic monuments, sites and urban centres. The Council of Europe, the European Commission, as well as the representatives of the civil society are associated with the activities of the EHHF by attending the annual meetings and encouraging the impact assessment of the cultural heritage sector at EU level. The EHHF acts as an advocate for heritage and produces recommendations on specific issues through its two standing committees – the EHLF and the Economic Taskforce.

The EHHF Secretariat, which was set up in January 2014, ensures continuous communication among the national heads throughout the year and acts as an intermediary between them and other European public and private actors.

The next EHHF annual meeting will be held in Bern on 18-20 May 2016 hosted by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture.
