On the 8th of May, Mario Crecente, as Vice President of the Scientific Committee of the European Historic Thermal Towns (EHTTA), presented the Association, its purposes and its main projects to one of the members of Cabinet of Commissioner Carlos Moedas.
During his presentation, Mario Crecente talked about the creation of EHTTA in 2009 and how this platform has grew in the last years to have nowadays 42 members (active, associate and international) in 15 countries. All of them have a common commitment with the valorisation of Thermal Heritage, considered as one of the foundation stones of European culture.
The understanding of this phenomenon is in its infancy and a full analysis will require standardized data collected digitally and made accessible. In this context EHTTA promotes the creation of the Thermal Heritage of Europe Atlas, which will contain all known data on all aspects concerning the quantity, quality and value of Thermal Heritage.
