The institutional affiliation is created through the signature of a bilateral 4-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and a University, to cover research and other activities. In an annex to the MoU, a description of a 4-year strategy and foreseen activities for the first 2years are requested. The 2 annexes should be short (1 A4 page for the strategy and 1-2 pages maximum for the work plan for the first 2 years).
The University has to transmit to the World Heritage Centre an annual report on the progress achieved in implementing its work-plan.
The usual duration of MoUs is 4 years. It cannot be more but it can be less. MoUs can be renewed after 4 years, if both parties agree. The proposed activities should contribute to the goals and objectives of UNESCO in the field of heritage and address as much as possible the priorities identified in the framework of the implementation of the relevant UNESCO Conventions, as reflected in their statutory decisions.
UNESCO not being a funding Agency, signing this MoU will not correspond to any funding from the World Heritage Centre. However, recognition of a partnership with the World Heritage Centre of UNESCO may help Universities mobilize resources from sponsors and donors. More significantly, becoming part of this large network may facilitate contatcs among institutions and individuals and foster cooperation among them.
Universities interested in becoming institutional members of the network and working with the World Heritage Centre of UNESCO through the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), may contact to:
