Join the second European Heritage Youth Residency in Romania

Europa Nostra, the largest European network of heritage organisations, Tășuleasa Social and Asociația Monumentum, both winners of the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards, will organise the second edition of the European Heritage Youth Residencies from 27 June until 3 July 2024 in Romania. 

Around 15 young heritage stakeholders will be selected to come together to discuss heritage and sustainable tourism. Participants will partake in hiking and other hands-on heritage activities, and will collaborate on lasting resources for other heritage professionals and students.

The European Heritage Youth Residency 2024 is an opportunity for students, professionals and heritage stakeholders to see first-hand how heritage policies and projects around sustainable tourism have been successfully implemented. This includes the Via Transilvanica, a 1,400 km hiking trail offering a journey through Romanian heritage, and the Ambulance for Monuments, an innovative programme to carry out emergency repairs on heritage buildings in Romania.

The programme is designed for 18-35 year old students, professionals and stakeholders, with an affinity for heritage and sustainable tourism.


The programme seeks to initiate new formats of cross-sectoral cooperation, fostering projects of co-creation and collaborative plans. The peer-learning methodology of the programme is designed to stimulate interaction, collaborative learning and solution-building in a cooperative and friendly expert environment. Participants will be expected to present their own experiences of working within sustainable tourism. This includes sharing successful local policies and projects, as well as their top tips, pitfalls and learnings. The selected participants will also therefore get useful information and ideas for improving or initiating their own local projects or ideas on how they might transfer some of the presented practices to their own localities.


The programme will include meetings with local stakeholders, site visits, hikes, restoration and solution-building workshops.

Applications must be submitted by 22 April 2024 via the following link. For more information, contact:

Summer school and new master course on Computer and Geoscience in Archaeology

Digitalisation is transforming our field and profession, thereby also altering the requirements for education and training. In this context, we have developed offerings at HTW Dresden to provide Archaeology students with essential knowledge of digital tools relevant to their field. The curriculum emphasizes the fundamentals of computer science and geoinformatics, such as mathematics, programming, photogrammetry and 3D imaging, surveying, remote sensing, geographic information systems, and their practical application in archaeology. This is complemented by sessions on academic writing, historical and theoretical backgrounds, ethical questions, research data management, as well as practical components.The programme is poised to launch in the forthcoming winter semester. 

Additionally, as a kickoff, a virtual Summer School will be held from June 3 to 14, offering a succinct introduction to the programme's topics for interested individuals. Registration for this is open until May 12.
