After more than a year of remote working, the AccessCult project partners finally met in Turin for the first face to face meeting from 7th – 8th June 2022. The first day of the meeting was hosted by the Istituto dei Sordi di Torino (our Italian partner). During the second day, the partners explored and considered accessibility in the context of cultural heritage sites in the city of Turin.
During the meeting an overview of the work plan and revised timeline was presented by Lead Partner, University of Burgos. A summary was given of the progress in Work Package by the partners involved in them. Namely, the implementation of the six months training for HEI student’s (Intellectual Output 3 and 5) at the University of Ljubljana, University of Klaipeda and University of Burgos).
