The European Heritage Network
The European Heritage Network is a permanent information system bringing together governmental services in charge of heritage
protection within the Council of Europe. The European Heritage Network focuses on cultural heritage, particularly on architectural
and on archaeological heritage.
The multilingual thesaurus attached to the HEREIN project intends to offer a terminological standard for national policies
dealing with architectural and archaeological heritage.
The Heritage-Discovery heading hosts virtual exhibitions intended to illustrate the European cultural diversity through
the discovery of its common heritage. These exhibitions have as their goal to present the growing opportunities created by
close collaboration between European countries and regions.
