CONCHA Project

It was recently approved the application made to the European Programme MSCA-RISE. The project “CONCHA: The construction of early modern global Cities and oceanic networks in the Atlantic: An approach via Ocean’s Cultural Heritage”, is chaired by Prof. João Paulo Oliveira e Costa and coordinated by Cristina Brito (CHAM / NOVA FCSH—UAc). This is a researcher’s exchange project that joins 11 partner institutions from Europe, Africa and the Americas. It has a duration of 4 years, during which several research, education and scientific dissemination activities are planned. CONCHA is directly connected to the main purposes of the UNESCO Chair The Ocean’s Cultural Heritage. CONCHA’s main goal is to

explain the different ways that port cities developed around the Atlantic from the late 15th and early 16th century in relation to differing global, regional, and local ecological and economic environments.

Best practice related to Underwater Cultural Heritage

Following the MSP 4/5 resolution from the fifth session of the State Parties meeting at the 2001 Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage, held on the 28th and 29th April, 2015, the State Parties are invited to provide examples of best practice related to underwater cultural heritage.

 

The UNESCO Secretariat developed a form for this purpose, to simplify Member States' presentation of these examples. The responses will enable the UNESCO Scientific and Technical Advisory Board (STAB) to draw up an inventory of best practice available to all State Parties at the 2001 Convention.
