Cooperation with UNESCO

The Research Center implements the project in cooperation with the UNESCO World Heritage Committee. It is aimed at the creation of management programs for the Armenian monument groups included in UNESCO’s “World Heritage List” (Geghard Monastery and the Upper Valley of the Azat River, Haghpat and Sanahin monasteries, Cathedral and Churches of Echmiatsin, and the Zvartnots Archaeological Site).
These monuments, inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1996-2000, were for the first time thoroughly examined and scanned within the framework of a UNESCO grant.
Within the framework of the project, international experts from Sri Lanka, Greece, Italy and South Africa were invited to Armenia, and online courses and meetings were held to improve the abilities and skills of the participants.
