The MINERVA project is going to develop a set ofeducational materials, using an eLearning approach, starting from the products of its working groups.
The first application concerns the “Technical Guidelines” issued at the beginning of 2005, and soon available as an educational tool at the MINERVA Web site.
We are also signing agreements with individual universities and trans-European networks of Higher Education institutions, with the objective to facilitate the re-use of the outputs developed by the project for educational purposes.
