Heritage Counts for Europe

Reflections on Cultural Heritage

Heritage Counts / Reflections on Cultural Heritage Theories & Practices is a publication following the international conference Heritage Counts focussing on the economic, social, environmental and cultural impact of built cultural heritage, organised on 3-5 February 2015 by the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (KU Leuven) in Leuven, Belgium. The Heritage Counts conference was a very successful 2nd edition of the yearly Thematic Week, thanks to the enthusiastic discussions among international and interdisciplinary participants as well as the link with the Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe project, funded by the EU Culture Programme (2007-2013).

Taking into account the many fruitful discussions and positive messages on the relevance of this topic, a rigorous publication that encompasses the conference’s content and quality was developed. Lilian Grootswagers and Prof. Th. Coomans produced a chapter in the book (Developing a European Network for the Future of Religious Heritage).
