RESEARCH REPORT (ANALYSIS OF NEEDS)
Analysis has been implemented through 3 axes, so that the consortium is able to proceed with the other Intellectual Outputs. The 3 axes analyzed are: 1.) Publicly available training/teaching contents and educational modules in the field; 2.) Existing knowledge among cultural workers, disabled persons’ needs, motivation and barriers to accessing museums; 3.) Existing projects, good practice examples of EU accessible museums and galleries.
EDUCATIONAL MODULE FRAMEWORK AND DESIGN
Aim of IO2 is to assess current practise, determine training and education needs, determine competences to be developed and consequently the learning outcomes of the developed module. The result will be the developed framework of the module and its curriculum.

The materials will be tested within a 1-month intensive adult training for cultural workers.
IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EDUCATIONAL MODULE AND ITS ASSESSMENT
The result is a detailed study with collection of data collection and reports, validation of learning outcomes and a set of recommendations for improvement of HEI teaching materials (IO3) and adult training materials (IO4) as well as existing study programmes across EU.
CATALOGUE OF RECOMMENDATIONS AND FOLLOW-UP OPPORTUNITIES
