The first of three Train-the-trainer seminars will be held in Erfurt on the 27th of November 2017 in Erfurt handling the issue of preservation of cultural heritage.

The capacity building within this project is foreseen to occur in several steps. Train-the-trainer seminars are the first towards an increase of knowledge and capacities in the regions. The trainings have three thematic foci: preservation, stakeholder alignment and promotion. Once the trainers gather in international seminars to gain new inputs and insights on these topics, they pass this information, once adapted to the local reality, to the actors in the regions.

Some of the main goals of the Train-the-trainer seminar on preservation are supporting international network, communication and exchange of expertise and experience, guarantee a common baseline among involved territories, secure the availability and suitability of provided inputs at regional and local level, present innovative approaches in preservation of cultural heritage, especially regarding funding options and provide hints on key issues to be observed in preservation projects and strategies. The seminar will be based on a pre-developed curriculum, content to be provided to the attendants but will mostly consist of interactive working sessions in which the attendants will apply the acquainted knowledge and inputs in practical examples and group exercises. The outcomes of this working sessions will be used to further develop the curricula on preservation.

More information on the exact programme and registration procedures for this event will be published on this website when available.

ECRR Policy Conference

First big open event in the frame of ECRR

Almost at the middle of the project's implementation, the first big open event is taking place in Erfurt on the 28th of November 2017.

By then the main steps setting the base for the European Cultural Route of Reformation will be made. Organized right after the closing of the 500th Reformation Jubilee, ECRR aims at positioning itself and the Route as a stable and sustainable option to keep Reformation and its cultural heritage activated, independently from special celebrations and commemorations, as well as to raise awareness about the high diversity within Reformation movements and processes. The event seeks to enable networking amongst relevant actors from all the involved regions and foster a feeling of unity and belonging among them. At the same time, the importance and potential of cultural heritage, Reformation cultural heritage and European Cultural Routes for regional development, tourism and education should be highlighted and made aware to all participants.

The final goal of this event is the "ceremonial" signing of the TAP by some of the Route's funding members.

The final program of the event, as well as information about registration will be posted on this website as soon as they are available.
