Energy Management in Cultural Heritage : call for abstracts

The International Conference on Energy Management in Cultural Heritage will take place in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 6 to 8 April 2011. Some 250 participants, including cultural heritage protection experts, representatives of national and local authorities, architects, engineers, urban planners and decision makers in the field of building construction and environmental protection, as well as consultants and other experts from the field of cultural heritage protection are expected to attend this high-level event.


The conference is organized by UNDP Croatia and UNESCO Venice Office in collaboration with GTZ Open Regional Fund (ORF-E), the Ministry of Economic Development of the Republic of Italy, UNDP Bosnia and Herzegovina, the City of Dubrovnik, the City of Venice, the Ministry of Economy, Labor and Entrepreneurship, the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund, the Croatian Chamber of Architects, the Croatian Architects’ Association, and the Zagreb Croatian Architects’ Society.

The main goal of the conference is to promote energy efficiency in cultural heritage buildings in the region, through exchanging knowledge and experience applied in pilot projects and case studies in Croatia and worldwide. Energy efficiency in public buildings is a fully adopted practice, but the need also exists for maintaining buildings categorised as cultural heritage. The Conference’s goal is to create synergy between cultural heritage protection and the need to increase energy efficiency in an open and interactive manner, based on gathered experiences.

The Conference is intended for all decision makers and experts, who will stimulate further development in this area based on completed energy efficiency projects in cultural heritage buildings in Croatia and abroad.

The Conference is calling for abstracts and abstract submission will be open until 15 December 2010. Follow the link to view :  Abstract submission form
