Company short introduction.  Mad’in Europe is a small company based in Brussels supporting European professions in cultural Heritage (restoration-conservation, fine and traditional crafts) as an asset for European Economy, Culture and Identity and sustainability.  Our aim is to use innovative tools and solutions to bring growth to craftsprofessionals, create awareness about crafts professions and to position them as a valid option and business opportunity for next generations. Our main actions are:

  • Connect European professionals in fine/traditional crafts and restorers of cultural heritage with an international audience of private consumers, architects, retailers, designers, interior designers, historic houses owners, and other professionals.  
  • Raise awareness among the public about the value of crafts in culture, economy, and society.
  • Enhance sustainable values embedded by crafts professions.
  • Support transmission of know-how, capacity building and mobility in the sector.
  • Develop a large network of collaborations with other European stakeholders (Historic Houses associations, Foundations, Architects, members of the World Crafts Council Europe and the Heritage Alliance 3.3, European Commission) to develop synergies, merge resources and get funding.
