The Gyula Forster National Centre for Cultural Heritage Management is one of the knowledge providers of the project and the professional coordinator of the Monumentenwacht/Műemlékőr pilot project. Latter pilot is aimed at exploring ways of introducing and adapting the Dutch ’Monumentenwacht’ method in Hungary.
