The UNESCO Chair on Cultural Heritage Management was created in 2000 and is established at the National University of Columbia, branch located in Manizales. Its main objectives are to promote an integrated system of research, training, information and documentation activities, focusing on cultural heritage management. It should facilitate the collaboration between high-level researchers and internationally renowned professors from the University and from other higher education institutions in Columbia.
In 2001, in response to a technical assistance request, two experts were sent on mission, with the support from the France-UNESCO Cooperation Agreement, to support a training programme at the National University of Columbia (branch located in Manizales).
