On 13 December in Brussels, ENCATC's 2019 Policy Debate will foster a lively conversation and exchange on the theme of accounting for heritage assets in the public and non profit sectors.
What are the main issues involved in the capitalization process of heritage items? What are the ethical, cultural and economic implications? What insights can we gain about the peculiarities of these heritage assets? Who is in the position to decide how to properly design and implement the related accounting setting?
A diverse panel of experts will help us to answer these questions and debate the theme along the lines of a comparative perspective involving EU and non EU Countries, in the light of the forthcoming European process of harmonisation of the accounting principle, and practices in these sectors. The event will also be the opportunity for all participants to share their best practices or key studies in the specific field of heritage assets and thus contributing to the development of a more comprehensive framework of reference.
The ENCATC Policy Debate is a major gathering to debate pressing issues in cultural management and policy. Now in its 10th edition, organised in partnership with ENCATC members BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts and the University of Salento, the Policy Debate attracts academics, researchers, cultural managers, and policy makers from Europe and beyond who wish to gain new ideas, exchange knowledge, and stay on top of hot topics in cultural management and policy.
ENCATC is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
