Charisma project – Erasmus+

Risk Manager of Cultural Heritage

Mazzini Lab is the leader of the Erasmus + Charisma project (Risk Management for Cultural Heritage) which aims to develop and pilot a new VET curriculum to meet the needs of the labour market in the Cultural Heritage sector in the face of climate change, formalising necessary skills and competences for a new professional figure.
