This synthesis report is presenting the main results of these research activities, which were conducted in 5 European countries: Greece, Germany, France, Portugal & Slovenia. It draws conclusions and gives suggestions regarding knowledge, skills and competencies needed in the emerging e-culture job sector. It also comments on the currently available training offer and highlights possible gaps, i.e. fields of trainings that have been not covered by the current training offer so far.
The document is based on a thorough review of all the partners’ reports without though repeating in detail their separate national findings. So this final report is able to solidly and accurately reflect a common European trend.
The methodology proposed suggested to start with the research hypothesis about a list of functional e-cult job roles composed by the experts’ group of the partnership. This hypothesis was then verified and modified through a more systematic desk research that aimed to reveal the actual needs.
In this light, after the presentation of the initial job list, the report proceeds with a brief overview of the national situation in the field of e-cult jobs, as it is revealed through relevant material on the web (research projects, reports, studies, products and services available at a national level), which allowed to trace the differences and commonalities between the participating countries, and realize both the current situation of this flourishing field and its future potential.
Desk research analysed the current state based on secondary data; internal and activity reports, press coverage, job ads and descriptions, and any other relevant documents and reports in partner countries was analysed with the aim to reveal both the future trends in the field of e-culture related occupations and the current situation. At the same time desk research analysed the situation in the field of trainings related to e-culture in each of the participating countries.
Complementary to the desk research conducted by all partners a stakeholders’ workshop was organised along the project meeting in Lisbon, with the aim to gain a mere insight of the way the key players in the Portuguese museum scene perceive the desk research findings.
The findings presented in this document are contributing to the objective of increasing the transparency and comparability of qualifications in the field of e-Culture. Moreover, the document served as a basis for the definition of the e-Cultural Job Role Profiles, which were developed within WP 2.
