• Familiarity with mitigation strategies in time of climate change
• Knowledge on data analysis, statistics
• Knowledge on the use of media for research purposes
• Knowledge in developing questionnaire for social science and communication purposes

About the village
The village is focused on interdisciplinary projects which will analyse, plan and develop visitorsinvolvement in Cultural Heritage Preservation, both analysing the added value of user collaboration in rehabilitation, requalification, recovery of cultural heritage, and in involving them as data source for heritage science research through the operation of user-based technologies.
They will be useful to a target of professionals working in the Cultural Heritage sector (i.e. Conservators, Architects, Civil Engineers, Heritage and Tourism ) as well as to heritage,material, computer scientists, chemists or experts on climate.
Then, at the light of of Cultural Heritage - as other side of the coin – the village objective will be to promote projects which will enhance the capacity to communicate to the public in different way and using different media to achieve cultural heritage promotion and enhancement. Projects can be for example focused on:
• the use of innovative methods and tool to attract the interest of visitors on museum expositions,
• the present to the public of new exhibitions or historical buildings after restoration interventions,
• the creation of virtual tours or sensory pathways target to different type of audience (kids, teenagers, seniors) or target to users with different types of physical disabilities (i.e. inability to walk or having visual impairment).
These projects will be useful to professionals creating tool for communication or communicating to visitors i.e. communication, social and computer scientists, psychologists and doctors, Heritage and Tourism Managers, museum staff, art historians,
In conclusion, the village will face big challenges for the present day society as
• Risk assessment of alteration on cultural heritage materials in time of mass tourism and climate change
• Cost of conservation and implementing strategies which can both involve visitors and be part of a long-term management plan which climate change mitigation strategies in museums and historical buildings
• Legislation in using data from public and cultural heritage trademark

Viktig informasjon om EiT:
- Det unike med EiT er fokuset på samarbeidskompetanse og gruppeprosesser.
- Undervisningsformen i EiT forutsetter at alle bidrar og er til stede hele semesteret. Derfor er det obligatorisk tilstedeværelse hver landsbydag.
- I motsetning til mange emner er spesielt de første dagene viktig i EiT. Det er da dere i gruppa blir kjent med hverandre, og diskuterer hva hver enkelt kan bidra med. Dere skal også utarbeide den obligatoriske samarbeidsavtalen, samt begynne å utarbeide en felles problemstilling.
