The aim of the advanced training phase (29th January – 10th February 2018) of the Training in Action project was twofold: first, to assess the progress of the mini-projects that the trainees have planned to do from August 2017 until January 2018. Second, to provide an advanced training for the selected trainees, by bringing all the different strands of training together (Survey, GIS, photogrammetry, condition assessment). The objective was to show how they can be integrated for a more complete documentation and assessment of the cultural heritage and how this would serve as a better basis for any decision making regarding the different aspects of heritage site management.
Overall, we had a very successful advanced training where the various strands of training integrated very well and where the participants demonstrated to grasp the techniques and approaches discussed. The participants demonstrated also to have made good progress with their mini-projects although some more than others, as to be expected. Nevertheless, we are pleased to remark that a good spirit of collaboration and mutual support have been established among the trainees between both Libyans and Tunisians
