The project took place from 2014-2016 and the complete results can be approached through www.interpretingheritage.eu.
InHerit aimed to build heritage staff capacity for competence oriented non-formal learning at heritage sites through professional development of managers and educators at these sites.
The project partners stated that through more professional heritage interpretation museums and heritage sites can serve as a low-threshold gateway to lifelong learning in non-vocational contexts, and that people with negative feelings towards education will gradually appreciate learning and overcome stereotypes by broadening their horizon.
