INTERNATIONAL WORKING GROUP TO REVIEW CURRENT OPERATIONAL ARRANGEMENTS CONCERNING INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE

ICOMOS Ireland IH NSC received a request from ICOMOS International to facilitate a review of the operational arrangements concerning industrial heritage within ICOMOS. An invitation for expressions of interest was issued to ICOMOS National Committees and ISCs in early 2014 with a view to organising a meeting during the General Assembly taking place in Florence in November 2014.

The invitation garnered a good response and the subsequent meeting enjoyed a lively discussion. At the conclusion of the meeting it was agreed to establish a Working Group to undertake the review. Invitations were subsequently issued calling for expressions of interest in joining the Working Group. The meeting group intends to commence its work by mid 2015 with a view to submitting a report at the General Assembly in 2017.
