Partners in the EU Heritage consortium, a transnational developed under Erasmus + EU program (Sector Skills Alliance for Design and Delivery of VET), are currently undertaking an extensive research to learn about the skills and training needs for cultural heritage professionals across EU-28 countries.
As a first stage in this research phase of the project, over 370 training programmes and projects on cultural heritage were mapped, and more than 1,100 relevant and key stakeholders were identified as a result of a joint desk research work carried out by all partners in all EU-28 countries.
After that, a survey was designed and launched, which is open at the moment, targeting managers and cultural heritage and cultural tourism workforce. You can access the English version of the survey at this link. For other languages versions (Dutch, German, Greek, Italian, Romanian and Spanish versions available), please contact the consortium at firstname.lastname@example.org. On behalf of the EU Heritage consortium, we would be grateful if you could complete and/or help us disseminate this survey. A significant number of replies have been gathered already, which proves the interest on this topic among cultural heritage professionals and institutions.
EU Heritage project partners are also conducting interviews with experts and policymaker, with the aim to expand the information collected via the questionnaire.
This research phase of the project will result in a report, and later phases involve the development of a set of training modules, an online learning platform, pilot training sessions and an evaluation framework.
EU Heritage is a wide transnational initiative that brings together 10 partners from 7 European countries (Italy, Spain, Greece, Germany, Malta, Romania, Belgium) with different specialisations. EU Heritage project partnership will work to create a new transnational curriculum for cultural heritage professionals, focused on digital skills, transferable and transversal competences, soft skills, and skills connected to “experience tourism” in the field of cultural heritage..
