Specific results of the project are related to the restoration of the Kálnoky manor in Micloșoara (Covasna), and the establishment of the Museum of Transylvanian Life. Another component of the project is related to the improvement of the quality of life for the communities from Baraolt microregion, through specific measures for the strengthening and diversification of the professional abilities of the inhabitants, but also through the development of local economy and the improvement of the situation of the Roma community.
