The group will be composed of 26 experts, including experts from Ukraine, and will help lay out the foundations of the EU’s support in safeguarding Ukrainian cultural heritage.

It will be set up as a dedicated sub-group to the Commission expert group on cultural heritage.

The Commission is looking for members who have different experiences and knowledge of good practices in recovering from disasters and increasing the resilience of cultural heritage in emergency situations.

The experts will also help the Commission put together a set of recommendations from recovery processes on the prevention, preparedness and recovery of cultural heritage in Ukraine.

These recommendations and lessons learnt could also guide relevant projects and initiatives in the future.

The deadline for applications is 25 April 2023.

Background

Following Russia’s war of aggression and its  impact on Ukrainian heritage, the EU Work Plan for Culture 2023-2026 included an action to preserve cultural heritage and empower local cultural and creative sectors in Ukraine.

Setting up a dedicated sub-group to the regular Commission expert group on cultural heritage is a part of this endeavour.

This is an addition and a follow-up to the first set of measures and actions undertaken by the Commission to safeguard Ukrainian cultural heritage.


Note: this page was updated on 19 July to correct the number of experts from 25 to 26.
