French term or phrase:ce qui doit être apprécié aujourd'hui
I'm having trouble making sense of this. It describes a symposium coinciding with the 25th anniversary of a contemporary arts institute:
"Le colloque interrogera ce qui doit être apprécié aujourd'hui, de ce que l'histoire a transmis, tant dans l'articulation de l'artistique à l'économique, à l'échelle européenne, que dans la transformation des critères d'évaluation."
The noise you can hear is my head banging against the wall!
"Mille mercis" for your input and insight. I had a little chat with the person who wrote the text and came up with this: "The symposium will reflect on which aspects of our historical legacy are most relevant today..." Many, many thanks, your ideas were invaluable!
Just to say I have absolutely no other info at all about the event, just this one line. I understand "appécier" in the sense of "what we have to learn from" (so yes, considered and verbs along these lines).

Notes to answerer
Asker: Absolutely! Fitting the two together is as much as a problem as anything but I'm not "allowed" to post as one question.
Explanation: ... is how I understand it; the symposium will try to assess, measure, evaluate (appraise??) - can't think of any more synonyms! - the legacy of history ..
i.e. apprécier in the sense Évaluer; mesurer quantitativement, chiffrer d'une manière approximative : (TLF)
