We are glad to share with the Conservator-Restorers community this E.C.C.O.s publication based on the Working Group NACE, and their development since 2014-2015 E.C.C.O.s Strategic Plan.
E.C.C.O. proposes that the cultural heritage sector should be classified as a discrete "Sector" in the NACE Codes the better to capture the economic contribution heritage activities generate for the European economy. This paper reviews the current structure of NACE and re-imagines how the proposed statistical framework suggested in the ESSnet-Cultural Report could accommodate a cultural heritage sector into which the activity of conservation-restoration can be situated.
Thank you so much to the authors: Elis Marçal (Working Group Referent), Susan Corr, David Aguilella Cueco, Jeremy Hutchings, Conor Newman.
