Across Europe’s regions and cities, culture is highly valued by residents and visitors alike. Cultural and creative industries are also a vital asset for regional economic competitiveness and attractiveness, while cultural heritage is a key element of the image and identity of cities and regions, and oftentimes the focus of city tourism. Integrating culture and heritage in regional and local development strategies stimulates the development of creative businesses; promotes traditional cultural assets, brings spill-over effects to the wider local community.
