The Mu.SA project as an european best practice

The official European Commission website dedicated to Culture mentions the Mu.SA project as a good practice among actions that develop new skills for the conservation of cultural heritage.

The project appears in the context of one of the 10 Initiatives of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage designed to ensure the legacy of the European Year 2018.

Mu.SA is included in the Initiative 8 – Heritage-related skills, Component 3: Opportunities for cultural heritage professionals.

It is therefore included among  the “several actions that are being carried out to help tackle the shortage of high-level professionals in “traditional” heritage occupations and to develop new professional skills, including making better use of new technologies for heritage preservation”.

The project is described on the official website as follow:

Good practice: the Erasmus+-funded Mu.SA project (Museum Sector Skills Alliance) is investigating necessary skills and competences to support museum professionals in their digital transformation journey. The project will inform the development of specific training programmes for developing both hard/digital and transferable skills for ICT-related jobs for museum professionals“.
