Cultural Heritage as a Generator of Sustainable Development,
The role of Entrepreneurship: Challenges and Opportunities

Cultural Heritage is an area that is developing rapidly. In the context of the INHERIT Programme Erasmus+ research project on Cultural Heritage, Middlesex University in conjunction with our partners across Europe are developing a programme that will enable Cultural Heritage become a generator of sustainable development for communities across Europe.

To enable us to develop the best and most appropriate programme we are organizing a five-day focus group event. We have invited experts from a range of Cultural Heritage areas to take part in a focus group discussion around the most critical elements that we need to consider for this programme.
The focus group event will take place at the Hendon Campus of Middlesex University between the 31st October -4th November 2016.

If you are interested, please register your attendance by the 21st October here.

We hope that you will be able to join us in this important project and we will happily provide any additional information.

The organisers,

Professor Marina Papanastassiou, Dr. Simon Best, Dr. Shasha Zhao and Dr. Costas Priporas
