U-Mar promoting Enhancing underwater archeology to make it an innovative tool for developing sustainable & creative tourism is a KA220-VET – Cooperation partnerships in vocational education and training – project co-funded by Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
The general aim of the project U-Mar is to develop the knowledge and the valorization of heritage related to underwater archaeology, through the following specific objectives:
The project will develop 3 innovative outputs:
1. New Training Course on Underwater Archaeology for Cultural Operators
2. Development of U-Mar e-learning platform;
3. Creation of Interpretation Centres on Underwater Archaeology.
Total Project duration: 24 Months (2022-2024)
Underwater cultural itineraries, parks and museums are good model for dissemination and education of UCH sites to the diving community but may still remain remote and mysterious to non-divers. Local and national maritime museums, historical societies, and university programs can supplement local preserve systems by creating land-based interpretative venues that help in connecting UCH sites and their importance with local and national history.
