The Chair of Education and Intangible Heritage of the Pyrenees – which has the support of the Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Institute for Development and Promotion of Alt Pirineu i Aran (IDAPA), and the Institut d’Ilerdencs Estudis (IEI) -, was approved on June 29, 2016 by the Government Council of the University of Lleida.
On December 1, 2015, UNESCO included the Summer Solstice Festivals in the Pyrenees in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity; a fact that promoted the creation of the present chair and that made this festival one of the main lines of action of the same.
PROMETHEUS is a project that arises as a result of this recognition of the Summer Solstice Festival in the Pyrenees by UNESCO and aims to capitalize it through cross-border innovation carried out in universities and research centers. The project will develop a joint strategy in the field of social sciences.
