The host university also organized site-visits to places of great architectural heritage value, where the professors and students had the opportunity to see restoration works, as well as already restored buildings and structures.
One of the most important outcomes of the training course is to form international teams of students from the consortium member universities to work on real case projects. It was decided that these teams will carry out their work during September-November of this year. Guest lecturers from EU universities will conduct consultations through video conferences. Student teams will prepare the reports and outcomes of their work and present them at the final conference of the project which is anticipated to hold in December, 2023.

There were discussions on financial-administrative and technical issues, as well as on the preparation of the schedule of the actions to be implemented.
