For several few years the Best in Heritage conference, which usually takes place at the end of September in Croatia was accompanied by a publication. In 2015 28 projects that were recognised for their work in the cultural heritage are introduced in the publication "Best in Heritage: Projects of Influence (14th Edition)". The projects deal with museums and their outreach into their regions or the development and implementation of a renovation plan, among them are projects from Hungary, Croatia, Romania, Italy and Belgium. The publication and conference were made possible in partnership with Europa Nostra, the support of Creative Europe and the ICOM Endowment Fund.
This guide was published in 2014 and introduces different EU funding programmes running from 2014-2020 and ways in which they can be used in the tourism sector. The introduced programmes range from "LIFE", which is mainly focusing on environmental and nature conservation projects throughout the EU, to the Regional Development Fund, which is one of the five "European Structural and Investment Funds". In an easy-to-follow structure each programme is first introduced and it's applicability in the tourism sector is explained. It also answers the questions on eligibility, the type and level of funding as well as the application process itself. Lastly, successful examples are given. Although it is aimed at the tourism sector the handbook offers general rules that apply to anyone aiming to apply for EU funding programmes, especially in the cultural sector.
