University of Porto receives UNESCO Chair in the culture sector

The chair, the first of the University of Porto in the culture sector, will focus on the management and conservation of cultural heritage, as well as in the planning and project processes with the aim of promoting a qualified contemporary intervention in heritage resources.

In addition to promoting innovative practices, the chair will also support the management and new processes for naming World Heritage sites in Portugal and internationally, including countries with Portuguese-influenced heritage, guarantees FAUP.

The chair has a duration of four years and can be “renewed” through evaluation by UNESCO and includes a wide range of initiatives, including an interdisciplinary training unit, research meetings and dissemination of the Center for Studies in Architecture and Urbanism.

The UNESCO UNITWIN Chair program, launched in 1992, aims to promote cooperation between universities internationally as a way of strengthening institutional capacities through knowledge sharing, with the UNITWIN network bringing together more than 700 institutions from 114 countries.

In Portugal, there are 13 UNESCO chairs and, in addition to this most recent assignment, the University of Porto also has the Chair “Life on Earth”, coordinated since 2017 by the Center for Research in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources.
