Education and Training
The MINERVA project is going to develop a
set of educational materials, using an
eLearning approach, starting from the
products of its working groups.
The first application concerns the “Technical
Guidelines” issued at the beginning of 2005, and soon
available as an educational tool at the MINERVA Web
site.
We are also signing agreements with individual
universities and trans-European networks of Higher
Education institutions, with the objective to facilitate the
re-use of the outputs developed by the project for
educational purposes.

What remains still to be done
In addition to the natural continuation of the
political, technical and international coordination,
MINERVA has the following priorities that will be
carried out in the continuation of the work of the
network:
– To agree on common content selection criteria to
avoid duplications and to better represent the cultural
European diversity;
– To enhance the involvement of the cultural
institutions, also at regional and local levels;
– To reinforce the relationship with stakeholders, to
help exchanges and cooperation between the private
sector and the public cultural institutions.
