In this publication we, the Interreg IVa Cluster Maritime Heritage Skills, report on the progress made on capitalising and valorising the expertise gained from our preceding maritime heritage projects.
By developing a system of sharing and certifying we prepared a record of maritime heritage skills for future use in education. In making an inventory on the position of maritime heritage in modern civilisation we describe the economic value of what once was for days to come. How to keep it alive, see opportunities when they arise and engage the public for our cause. Putting Maritime Heritage Skills in a whole new context, we suggest a further investigation into the pro’s and con’s of saving our maritime heritage for future generations. All of this has been the subject of international conferences, of which the results are shared in the feedback and conclusions on this report.
