The director of the regional museum in Montana – Mrs. Vanya Ivanova shared: “Now we have the opportunity to create digital copies of artifacts from our collections by ourselves, without the need for external experts.”
The director of the Regional museum in Vidin noted the possibility of creating new jobs, integrating a business model that would bring not only economic benefits, but also added value to the tourist offer.
The participants of the conference discussed possibilities for upgrading the project, and ways for future partnerships were drawn.
At the end of the event, the Chairman of the lead organization – Association “Svetlina za Belogradchik” (Светлина за Белоградчик) thanked all the participants in the project activities and the partner organizations from Alzira, Spain – Mancomunitat Ribera Alta, and Florence, Italy – Fondazione per la ricerca e l’innovazione:
“E-tour-net was created and implemented at a difficult time, difficult for all of us, and for people in general. We encountered fear and alienation and had to learn to live in a new way. Both personally and professionally, each of us has probably faced difficulties that we did not expect. The good thing about any crisis, however, is that it gives us an opportunity for a new beginning, it gives us a chance to develop in a way that was previously unthinkable.
I believe that there is always something to learn, there is always something to build on and I am convinced that our project is just one foundation for us as organizations and for stakeholders as an opportunity to acquire new knowledge and competencies.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for your hard work, your faith, your patience! I hope we will have the opportunity to develop our experience together!”
