The UNESCO Chair in Intangible Heritage and Traditional Know-How: Linking Heritage was officially launched in March 2013.

The conference proceedings will be published in one of the Chair’s monographic editions. The conference itself will take place from October 29 to November 1, 2014 in Évora (Portugal).
