Klaipeda Tourism and Culture Information Centre
 On 10 January the Conference "Best practices - Successful stories" took place in Berlin. The BalticMuseums team was very happy to be invited as one of the speakers. The Technology Centre Vorpommern had organised the conference presenting projects from different funding programmes: Baltic Sea Region Programme, South Baltic Programme and Central European Programme as part of the JOSEFIN project. The audience from various projects and organisations was enthusiastic about the results of the BalticMuseums 2.0 project. Especially the kids section and the online platform got a lot of attention. Many interesting contacts could be made and the conference was a very rare chance to gather experiences across different funding programmes. Thus the presented projects were very different in size of budget and number of partners, however many participants found links in regard to the content worked on.

 The NMFRI Gdynia Aquarium contacted two specialists that will help to create the eGuide kids tour. The content will be specifically analyzed by persons experienced in working with children, writing and preparation of tales. During the consultations the general instructions and advice on kids content creation will be gathered and shared with the other BM 2.0 partners.
A similar approach was taken to get specialist knowledge for creating tours for people with disabilities. Gdynia Aquarium had invited specialists of this field that gave very valuable advice which was shared among all partners. This has proven to be very helpful for the team members.
