Conservation Summer Academy 2020 in Pompeii: Survey

As part of the »TransferFinanz« project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), we at the Fraunhofer Center for International Management and Knowledge Economy IMW are accompanying the crowdfunding campaign »Conservation Summer Academy 2020 in Pompeii« with a questionnaire until April 8, 2020.

The international continuing education program will support the training and qualification of young restorers in Pompeii over a total of eight weeks, thus contributing to the preservation of our world cultural heritage. Within the framework of the crowdfunding campaign, the missing financial means for the organisation of the »Conservation Summer Academy 2020 in Pompeii« are to be acquired.

With your participation in this survey, you help us to better understand the importance of material cultural heritage, such as the Pompeii World Heritage site, for society. Furthermore, you will help us to find out the reasons for your participation in crowdfunding campaigns such as the »Conservation Summer Academy 2020 in Pompeii«.

Even if you are not (yet) familiar with the Pompeii World Heritage site and/or the crowdfunding campaign »Conservation Summer Academy 2020 in Pompeii«, we would appreciate it if you would give us about 5-10 minutes of your time.

If you have any questions about the campaign or the questionnaire, please feel free to contact us at transferfinanz@imw.fraunhofer.de.
