The European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage was announced on May 23, 2018 by Europa Nostra and the European Commission. The Europa Nostra Awards Jury awarded ‘Special Mentions’ to 12 heritage achievements from 11 European countries, among which the Balkan Heritage Field School. The Jury appreciated “the project’s extensive contribution to education in archaeology and conservation through multinational collaboration”.
‘Special Mentions’ are given to outstanding contributions to the conservation and enhancement of Europe’s cultural heritage, which have been particularly appreciated by the Jury but which have not been included in the final selection to receive an Award.
