Dutch-Australian Underwater Cultural Heritage Funding!


The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Canberra welcomes project proposals for initiatives in the field of Dutch-Australian underwater cultural heritage to be initiated in 2018.


On 15 September 2017, the Netherlands and Australia signed a major new agreement on how our two countries jointly manage and research our shipwrecks, sunken relics and other underwater cultural heritage. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) seeks to encourage more joint projects and sharing of skills and resources, in alignment with the UNESCO 2001 Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.
