How can I contribute?
Cooperation on topics of mutual cultural heritage interest is open to all European researchers and we welcome input from all members of the cultural heritage community into the development of the Action Programme.
Here are some guidelines for how to get involved:
- If you live or work in a country that is involved in the JPI Cultural Heritage, as either a member or an observer, please contact the relevant organisation in your own country. A full list of member and observer countries is available via the JPICH website. You can also access a full list of Executive Board and Governing Board members via the same site. We suggest contacting your Executive Board member in the first instance.
- If you have a specific topic or project that you would like to propose for inclusion in the Action Programme, please fill in the Project Proposal Template form - available in both PDF and Word format below - and return it to your national representative on either the Executive or Governing Board, or national representative organisation.
- If you are a member of an international organisation in the field of cultural heritage, please contact the relevant Advisory Board member for your organisation.The following organisations are represented on the Advisory Board of the JPICH: UNESCO, ICOM, ICOMOS, ICCROM, Council of Europe, ECTP, Europa Nostra.
- Again, you have a specific topic or project that you would like to propose for inclusion in the Action Programme, please fill in the Project Proposal Template form - available in both PDF and Word format below - and return it to your Advisory Board member, via the internal communications structure of the international organisation of which you are a member.
- Finally, please bear in mind this search for projects and parners is not a call for proposals in which any money will necessarily be made available from the JPI Cultural Heritage or the European Commission. At this stage we are simply looking for ways in which to pool our existing resources for the benefit of all, and to identify topics and projects that would benefit from wider international collaboration.
The template for project proposals, as well as one completed template with a sample project on the topic of natural stone included, are available via the links below.
