50 Years of ICOMOS and the Year of Industrial Heritage

At the Budapest Metropolitan University (former BKF), the Foundation for Information Society together with ICOMOS Hungary jointly organised a meeting celebrating the 50 Years of ICOMOS and the Year of Industrial Heritage on 15 October 2015. from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. in Budapest (XIV. Nagy Lajos király útja 1-9.).

The aim of the special conference is to draw the attention on our built cultural heritage by reporting on the half a century long committed worldwide monument protection work of ICOMOS including the great variety of the professional activities carried out by the Hungarian National Committee. We would like to achieve to have not only numerous environmental aware teachers and students in Hungary, in Europe and on the other continents but that they equally possess a high level of heritage awareness as well. This quest has been followed by one of the most successful, ever growing professional network of the ICOMOS community for the past 50 years.

Our invited lecturers include experts from monument protection, ICOMOS Hungary, the Foundation for Information Society, industrial heritage and museum managers, teachers from several Universities.

Students of the Metropolitan University and from other institution present their posters on the subject.
