These programs, which connect theoretical, practical and laboratory knowledge, are implemented either remotely, or face-to-face, or a combination of them, in 4 specially equipped rooms in the museum exhibition space:

  • Theory Room, where the theoretical training, discussion or presentations to the plenary session of the trainees take place, as well as access to information and bibliographic sources through the internet.
