Dear colleagues,

Here is our 5th newsletter on the project TRACCE DI MEMORIA – TRAME (2020-1-IT02-KA201-079794), from the ERASMUS+ programme, co-funded by the EU commission. We had some very impressive results in the past two months and we are pleased to share them with you.


TRAME JSTE was held online on the 4th, 9th and 11th of June 2021. The event was hosted by the Association of Cultural Heritage Managers – KÖME (Hungary) with the aim of supporting the joint development of the TRAME educational methodology, and in particular of setting up a common basis for the delivery of pilot courses. It consisted of presentations and workshops dedicated to school teachers and heritage managers that were selected by partner organizations. Some presentations aimed to introduce future steps such as:

  • Presentations of the pilot programme drafts and pilot sites in Serbia, Italy and Turkey
  • Virtual tour as the introduction of Early Christian Necropolis of Pécs (Sopianae)
  • Presentation of the TRAME manual concept

Other presentations were dedicated to the specific topics or methodological and educational approaches developed within the project:

  • TRAME and the ancient migrations
  • Heritage interpretation, experience design and TRAME
  • The elements of the cooperation among teachers and the heritage site
  • Teaching teens (How can we make the topic relevant)
  • Cooperation and participation of students (in each educational phase)

The Joint Staff Training event helped partners to get to know each other’s perspectives, methods and good practices, as well as to exchange experiences in order to set up a list of common criteria for the definition of pilot programs.


The Round table on TRAME results was an online dissemination event organized on the 2nd of July 2021.

Team TRAME from the Institute for Archaeology Belgrade participated in the Viminacium virtual summer school held between the 14th and the 18th of June 2021. Our Jelena Anđelković Grašar PhD illustrated the results of the TRAME project with the presentation: “TRAME Project – Presentation of Cultural Heritage for Future Education”. The summer school was part of the project “Living Danube Limes”, which fosters a common bond in the Danube Region via heritage shared by all Danube countries. The project is funded by the Interreg Danube Transnational Program. The summer school was an exciting opportunity to learn about the use of different methods and new technologies in archaeology. Our team presented the potential of usage of cultural heritage in educational system as the effective way of learning. We at team TRAME believe that this kind of the approach is the most inspiring for future education.
