Abstract (in English)

This document stems from the work of an expert group assembled by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), under the mandate of the European Commission and in the framework of the flagship EU Initiative of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, “Cherishing heritage: developing quality standards for EU-funded projects that have the potential to impact on cultural heritage”. The main objective of the document is to provide guidance on quality principles for all stakeholders directly or indirectly engaged in EU-funded heritage conservation and management (i.e. European institutions, managing authorities2, international organisations, civil society and local communities, private sector, and experts). The document focuses on the core issue of quality in EU-funded interventions that could impact on cultural heritage (mainly built heritage and cultural landscapes), providing a summary of key concepts, international charters, European and international conventions, and standards and changes in understanding and practice of heritage conservation. Environmental, cultural, social and economic benefits resulting from the application of appropriate conservation measures are outlined. Given that the recognition of cultural heritage as a common good is a precondition of quality, the adoption of quality measures is proposed by raising awareness and strengthening the implementation of conservation principles and standards at every stage of a project, from conception to completion. The document recognises the need to develop capacity throughout the wide range of stakeholders involved. Principal areas are noted, related to programming, design, implementation, governance, risk assessment, research, education and training. Key research outcomes and specific recommendations are presented with each topic. A set of selection criteria is proposed at the end of the document, as a tool for decision makers to assess the quality of projects with potential impact on cultural heritage.

Ce document est issu des travaux d’un groupe d’experts réuni par le Conseil international des monuments et sites (ICOMOS), sous mandat de la Commission européenne et dans le cadre de l’initiative européenne phare de l’Année européenne du patrimoine culturel 2018, ≪ Cherishing heritage: developing quality standards for EU-funded projects that have the potential to impact on cultural heritage ≫. L’objectif principal du document est de proposer des orientations sur les principes de qualité a tous les acteurs directement ou indirectement impliques dans des actions de conservation ou de gestion du patrimoine financées par l’UE (c’est-a-dire les institutions européennes, les autorités de gestion, les organisations internationales, la société civile et les communautés locales, le secteur privé et les experts). Le document se concentre sur la question primordiale de la qualité des interventions financées par l’UE qui pourraient avoir un impact sur le patrimoine culturel (principalement le patrimoine bâti et les paysages culturels). Il propose un résume des concepts clés, des chartes internationales, des conventions européennes et internationales, des normes et des changements dans la compréhension et dans les pratiques de conservation du patrimoine. Il met également en lumière les avantages économiques, culturels, sociaux et environnementaux qui résultent de l’application de mesures de conservation appropriées.
