EU funding periods: recent and future projects

Year II of Creative Europe funding is over, with meetings, workshops, information sessions, and the ERIH annual conference at Porto as significant milestones. Other important achievements were the successful implementation of the new ERIH website and the brochure „European Industrial Heritage: The International Story“.

As a new instrument to gain valid data about the economic impact of industrial heritage in Europe, ERIH is developing an online survey, the Industrial Heritage Barometer.

Online: XTRA and new entries to the industrial history of European countries

The ERIH website has an exciting new section: XTRA: Company Museums and Factory Tours. Just klick ‘I want to go there’ and check the menu opening under ‘More to discover’. XTRA lists all ERIH sites that belong to a company that is still operating or which combine a visit with a factory tour.

The list ranges from the World Heritage Fagus Factory in rural Lower Saxony to the Clark’s company shoe museum in the small Somerset market town of Street.

Dates of Industrial Heritage Events on the ERIH Website

A useful new website feature - a handy schedule of dates is now available in the ‘What is new?’ section on the ERIH website. It offers an overview of all days (including? nights or weeks) of industrial heritage in 2017. So far, we have only listed events in Germany and Poland but hopefully that is going to change.

So whoever wants to be part of the list please forward basic details of the event to
webmaster@erih.net.
