European Foundation for Heritage Skills

Quick Reference


A non‐profit‐making non‐governmental organization set up in 1996 as an initiative by the Council of Europe to help improve ways of preserving the existing heritage of Europe. This covers not only the great monuments, but also major rural and industrial buildings and sites, as well as the less tangible heritage of popular traditions. It works in three areas: in‐service training, information exchange and networking, and development.
