Official launch of the H2020 ILUCIDARE project to animate an international network on heritage-led innovation and diplomacy

This three-year project supported by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union kicked off in Leuven (BE) on 6 February 2019. 

With an overall budget of nearly 3 million euro, ILUCIDARE will establish an international network to promote cultural heritage innovation and diplomacy. The project will maintain the legacy of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 and will strongly contribute to the overall objectives of the EU strategy for international cultural relations as well as of EU international cooperation in research and innovation.

  • Share knowledge through training and capacity building activities, interactive learning opportunities

ILUCIDARE builds on a strong international partnership including leading academic institutions, international heritage networks, technological innovators, public policy and communication experts.
