This project sets out to develop and maintain a sustainable platform engaging a large number of key stakeholders and communities of practices on how to improve the collaboration and comprehension among the entire European community of cultural organizations, in order to build up a common roadmap for future activities and explore how these encounters can be evaluated to understand the models.
