KPRC students test the digital learning platform about cultural heritage created during the project, share insights and acquired experience with other training participants, gain new knowledge and deepen competences and skills.

The students of the vocational training centers are the main target group of the project, so during the implementation of the project

VšĮ "eMundus" as a non-formal education institution cooperates with other educational institutions in Lithuania in order to achieve the quality of results, feedback and sustainability by using them after the end of the project.
