Heritage Portal is a free, online resource which features heritage-related news, research findings, job vacancies, technical literature and information on funding opportunities and events across Europe.

Aims and Objectives

Though primarily aimed at cultural heritage research professionals and practitioners across Europe, information on this site will be of value to anyone who has an interest in cultural heritage and its preservation.

We also recognise that the field of heritage research has expanded beyond archaeology conservation, art history and restoration to include engineering, IT, chemistry, physics and biology. Physicists working on new techniques for laser-cleaning metal artefacts, engineers investigating how historic monuments react to seismic stress and programmers developing digital applications that facilitate human interaction with heritage objects, sites or artefacts play a key role in what we now call the 'cultural heritage community'.

Getting Involved

Keep informed about European heritage issues by subscribing to our fortnightly Heritage Portal newsletter. We also publish and share interesting news on Twitter and Facebook.

As a community portal, we greatly welcome new members and encourage you to contribute news, your own research findings, grey literature, updates on work you’re doing, press releases, job listings and information about events that you are organising or attending.

Our online forums provide an opportunity to connect with other community members, create discussion groups, ask questions and call for help on a particular project or a particular technical difficulty.
