Working Package 2 (Strategic analysis of cultural heritage competences and occupational profiles) of the CHARTER project met from 14-15 March 2022 in Paris, France. The aim of the in-person meeting was to develop the first steps on how to draft occupational profiles, which is one of the key tasks of WP2.
The group of eight participants met at ICOMOS International Headquarters and Secretariat in Charenton-le-Pont, Paris, where they engaged in deep discussions and used different approaches and exercises to map out a method that will be attainable and usable by all. The methodology designed by WP2 will be tested at upcoming regional workshops and amongst consortium members to ensure that it fit its purpose and is user friendly. It will also allow WP2 to collect data and populate the heritage sector with samples of occupational profiles that reflect current practice.
While in Paris, the WP2 delegates met Marie-Laure Lavenir, ICOMOS’ Director General, and were very well welcomed by the whole Secretariat team.
