Working-conference: Development and Best Practices of (archaeological) Heritage Management as a Course
Tampere, Finland, 7 to 9 June, 2017

The aim of this working-conference is to identify possible teaching and/or training needs in heritage management in the Finnish context. We intend to bring experts with experience in teaching archaeological heritage management from around the world, as well as those that give training in different non-university settings, and Finnish experts together to share best practice and discuss whether there is scope to develop teaching and learning around cultural (and especially archaeological) heritage management.

7 June – Opening of the conference, 2 keynote lectures and breakout discussion sessions
8 June – 2 keynote lectures and breakout discussion sessions, closing of the conference
9 June – City tour focused on Tampere’s industrial heritage and management issues and a visit to one of the ‘Adopt a Monument Sites’.
