The second and last workshop of the Social Platform of European Identities and Cultural Heritage CulturalBase was held on 1 and 2 December 2016 in Florence, Italy. It was organised by the Global Governance Programme of the European University Institute, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, one of the project partners. Researchers, professionals from this field, and policymakers discussed a number of issues around European identity and cultural heritage and proposed priorities for future research programmes and policies. The final summary was recently published (available on the following link) and sets out the salient matters addressed at the workshop, such as the importance of a transnational cultural heritage, differences and similarities in European identity/identities, and the impact of the digital market on culture. CulturalBase is run by a consortium of European partners including Interarts, and funded by Horizon 2020.
