Europa Nostra and theEuropean Investment Bank Institute are pleased to invite you to an online masterclass in funding and advisory services for cultural heritage provided by the European Investment Bank (EIB) on 15 May 2024, from 14.30 to 16.00 CET.

Cultural heritage has been a long-standing area of funding and advisory services by the European Investment Bank. Such funding and advisory services are concentrated in European countries and can range from conservation of UNESCO World Heritage Sites to urban renewal, notably in less developed European cities and regions.

Accordingly, the EIB Institute has ensured cultural heritage is included in its programme of activities. Since 2013, the EIB Institute has partnered with Europa Nostra, notably under the 7 Most Endangered Programme. This innovative programme mixes the cultural expertise and advocacy work of Europa Nostra with the technical and financial appraisal of the EIB.
