LEME aims to foster innovation in the cross of the disciplines of Education, Development and Museology – in particular in their fields of non-formal education and training and socio-museology and construction of heritage. The integration between these disciplines will create synergies and new opportunities for interdisciplinary research, extended beyond of the fields of each discipline. In this amalgamation of disciplinary knowhow and in the search to advance new knowledge the digital technologies provide the base, as they are challenging the society.
