Horizon 2020

CoHere NEG PMS1795The IRC is leading a 3-year Horizon2020 Work Package on "Cultural forms and expressions of identity in Europe". 
Follow us on Twitter(#cohere_EU).

A team from  the IRC will be part of the €2.5 million Critical Heritages (CoHERE) project, which is the largest and most comprehensive study to date to explore the differences in how people, groups and institutions across Europe use the past to create a sense of belonging or non-belonging. The three-year study, funded under the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, will cover a broad range of topics including how museums present the past and how 'non-official' portrayals of the past such as historical re-enactments contribute to our cultural identity. It will also look at music and dance as well as language and tourism. For more details and regular up-dates, please see our Research pages.


CoHERE has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 693289.
