The Link Between European Historical Heritage and the Future of European integration

17 October 2014

Rome, Italy  | CNR, Aula Marconi


The conference "Bridge over troubled waters? The link between European historical heritage and the future of European integration" is organized by the Reflective Societies Unit of the European Commission's DG Research and Innovation, in cooperation with FLASH-IT and APRE

The workshop on “reflective societies” revolves around the problematic of the interconnectedness of the past, present and the future in the current European societies. It initiates a discussion about the potential meaning of “reflective societies” as societal challenge for current European societies in general and for setting the European research agenda under Horizon 2020 in particular.

The event brings together specialists of history, cultural heritage and identity studies (fields that cover a large and intimately related part of the research area under “reflective societies” as defined by the H2020 Research Framework Programme) and policy makers and managers from the European Commission and national funding bodies.

The results of the workshop will contribute to define future research topics on European history, heritage and identities that will respond to the needs of contemporary European societies and that will reinvigorate the link between interpretations of the past and the willingness to share common European objectives.
