The main objective of Moving towards Multiprofessional Work, MOMU, is to define and develop new multiprofessional working skills and environments for professionals in art and social work. These skills will respond to the needs of the European labour market in a rapidly changing society.

In order to be competent, educate professionals and answer the needs of working-life, the lecturers need to modify their traditional way of thinking about, for example, education aimed at one specific profession, while also acknowledging their role in building students’ multiprofessional competences.

The project group a consortium of four European universities: University of Applied Sciences Turku, Finland, which is the project coordinator; Manchester Metropolitan University, UK; the Viljandi Culture Academy of Tartu University, Estonia; and the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain.
