The first Grant Contract has been signed

On 15 May the Managing Authority and the Daugavpils City Council signed the grant contract to implement the project “Preservation and promotion of the cultural and historical heritage in Latvia and Russia” (LV-RU HERITAGE). This marks an important milestone for the programme as first of our many projects starts its active implementation phase.

The project aims at promoting the cross-border tourism through development of common cultural and historical heritage objects:
