About "How to transfer interdisciplinary competences in heritage studies"

All over Europe, during last years, arouse an urgent need to develop an interdisciplinary training approach and professional figures in order to answer complex problems related to the enhancement of cultural heritage sites and related services. It requires a high degree of interaction and engagement, often limited by coordination barriers and in finding the appropriated funding opportunities.

At the educational level, it means enhancing the development of flexible paths, improving learning processes and boosting the acquisition of a broad range of skills. Studies, research and training need to converge methods and analytical frameworks from multiple disciplines, integrating human sciences with scientific experiences and competences. In this context, what are the main educational gaps in interdisciplinary instruction? And which supports would be favourable at national and/or international level? Through some good practices and hands-on experiences, the interdisciplinary approach will be analysed and promoted widely.
