On the 27th October group departured  from Stralsund and visited Berlin.

E-Cul-Tours project meeting held at Stralsund was a great success!

The partner organisations met in Stralsund at the end of June to present and compare the results and the deliverables of each activity. It has been a review session to check and analyse all the educational and training achievements, pursuing each part of them, from the financial management to the formalities, sharing feedbacks and opinions and planning together the next steps. It has been an opportunity of development, team building and project-growth.

The 5th transnational meeting in Berlin, Germany

The 5th transnational meeting was held in Berlin, 4th and 5th of March 2019 and it was organized by leading organization EUFRAK-EUROCONSULTS BERLIN GMBH. The meeting gathered all the partners of the project: Bergamo University (Italy), Fachhoschule Stralsund (Germany), Dalarna University (Sweden), Aveiro University (Portugal), European Projects Association asbl (Belgium) and EUFRAK-EuroConsults Berlin GmbH (Germany). E-CUL-TOURS works on improving the employment possibilities of students with the development of new skills. The easiest way to learn from an expert from another country is to develop the innovative Module on Managing Cultural Heritage in Tourism that will have no face to face learning, as it will include e-learning courses, interactive seminars (webinars), creation of cases studies presented in real working contexts and blended mobilities to get a more detailed understanding of the heterogeneity of heritage tourism sites. In that scope, in two days of 5th transnational meeting in Berlin We discussed:
  • The project results and detailing the pending activities and possible issues;
  • Evaluation forms for O3 i.e. Didactic tutorial and O4 i.e. Technical Tutorial;
  • Review of the structure aims and formal requirements of ISP and blended mobility;
  • Preparation of the 2 field study trips (agenda, goals, visits, networking events, stakeholders and experts involvement, real case studies, additional practice experience, evaluation criteria, dissemination, follow-up activities);
  • Review of activities in relation to the online-course, discussion.
The meeting was fruitful both for the project E-CUL-TOURS and for the partners. With the joint forces, we manage to finalize and establish the structure and implementation schedule of the online course.

Third Multiplier Event: Scattered Heritage across Digital Humanities

The third Multiplier Event “Scattered Heritage across Digital Humanities” was organised by Bergamo University in the Museo delle storie di Bergamo on Thursday 25 October.

Many stakeholders attended the event such as professors, students and all the partners :

EUFRAK-EuroConsults Berlin GmbH (Germany), Fachhoschule Stralsund (Germany), Dalarna University (Sweden), Aveiro University (Portugal), European Projects Association asbl (Belgium) and, obviously, Bergamo University (Italy).

First of all Luca Driussi, coordinator of our project presented our project to the participants. Then, there was an interactive workshop between the different stakeholders, whose thematic was “ #DigitalizingHeritage – from local to global”.

Then, we went into the topic in depth through the analysis of three  Italian case studies:

  1. Archivio fotografico Sestini: a heritage of images. A digitization project to preserve and share.

Presented by Roberta Frigeni, director of Museo delle storie di Bergamo, and by Sergio Bellini – Mida Informatica/ZeroUNO.

  1. Networking house-museums throughout Italy.

Presented by Roberta Garibaldi and Elena Viani, both from the Bergamo University.

  1. New technologies for food and wine heritage.

Presented by Roberto Peretta, from Bergamo University.

Finally, the Multiplier Event ended with a “#OpenFieldLab. The objectives were to engage the participants to discover heritage in the Upper Town of Bergamo with their senses ( taste, sight, hearing, smell and touch) and the presentation of the results of this last.
