Erfgoedlabo Leuven started in 2017. It is an ambitious network in which the professional cultural heritage actors join forces, share information and knowledge, and consult and cooperate with one another. This network, that is still at the very early stages, was supported by IDEA Consult in focussing on its common vision and strategy. Various thematic 'studios' are now working on tackling common priority challenges, often in interaction with domestic and foreign experts. Innovation, knowledge sharing and practical relevance are important working principles.
