Among its main objectives, the MEFRO is aiming to work on the transfer and sharing of knowledge around the theme of memories in order to achieve the appropriation by the public on the international level.

 

The project is creating a permanent working, interdisciplinary and transnational network dealing with the theme of borders as a space for analysis which contains the major part of the difficulties hindering the history, memory and heritage in Europe at this moment.
