HerO Mid-Term-Conference in Valletta, Malta

09 November 2009

The HerO Mid-Term-Conference took place in Valletta, Malta on 9-10 November 2009. It was the 4th Thematic Seminar during Phase II of the network HerO - Heritage as Opportunity. Building up on the results of the meetings in Poitiers, Graz and Liverpool, the meeting aimed to foster the exchange among the project partners in regards to the elaboration process of “Cultural Heritage Integrated Management Plans” (CHIMPs) on local level in the partner cities.

This time a special focus was placed on “Implementation Strategies” (Workshop 3/3 on Management Plans). Furthermore, a round table discussion on the topic “Economic, social and environmental benefits of safeguarding cultural heritage” was held with all HerO Project Partners.

The HerO Midterm-Conference aimed to present the draft Strategy Paper “Support of historic urban landscapes via EU structural funds” as a result of the project work and exchange activities. Moreover, in a forum for discussion with the HerO associated Managing Authorities we debated the access to financial resources (EU Structural Funds and others).

In order to give insight into the local challenges and approaches, the hosting city Valletta has organized a range of interesting excursions and presentations.

Last but not least, the project meeting in Valletta of course also provided a platform to discuss organisational and administrative issues, communication strategies and finances.
