National Museum Week: an award winning initiative
In 2016 the second National Museum Week (NMW) was held, organised by the Netherlands Museums Association. Main goal of this week is to increase public appreciation for museum collections. During this workshop the participants discussed the objectives of such a week, how the NMA was able to improve NMW 2016 based on the lessons learned during the first NMW in 2015, how communications with museums, partners and public were arranged and how resources were organised. And of course why the NMW 2015 won an international award, even though it was the first time it was organised.

Quality for museums: Setting up a quality criteria framework for museums
"The Code of Ethics" from the International Council of Museums (ICOM) is an internationally accepted reference. It includes the optimally required principles for behavior and performance, which experts can use to orient themselves and stipulate clearly what the public can expect from museum-related fields and institutions. It not only defines what a museum is; it also defines what constitutes a good museum. In order to facilitate the first step in evaluating a museum's institutional quality, The Swiss Museums Association (Swiss MA) has made the Code of Ethics verifiable with a checklist suitable for all museums. Would this model be transferable to other countries? This was discussed in this workshop.

Museomix: How to set up museomix in your museum
MuseoMix is a three-day event that takes place worldwide in November. MuseoMix is a participatory moment in which teams of creative professionals invade day and night a museum to remix it by designing new ways for audiences to interact with its collection. The vision of Museomix is to create an open museum with a place for everyone, a living-lab museum that evolves with its users and a networked museum in touch with its communities. Is your museum ready for it?

Digital innovation: A way to involve private investors
There has never been a lot of money available in Europe for seed capital for start ups. Additionally, public institutions are looking for best ways to involve digital innovation in cultural heritage: Digital applications are offering scalability and potential returns to investors and Culture and Heritage are offering unique values to investors in terms of local, social and innovative impact. Digital applications popping up from many heritage institutions should look at investment to bring speed to development, use marketing reach and attract key financing. Who are these investors? What could be attractive to them? How to reach them? What are their investment criteria? What are the challenges and opportunities offered to museums?

A guide to crowdfunding for museums
With more than 600 European platforms and an increasing number of funds raised, crowdfunding has today become a popular method of fundraising. But how attractive is crowdfunding for cultural organisations and museums? What type of finance can be raised through it and where does crowdfunding fit in the financial mix of museum’s activities? The workshop focused on tips on how to choose the right platform, the do's and don'ts when setting up a crowdfunding campaign and on making museum projects attractive for crowdfunding. Examples from the museum world, also brought forward by the participants, were discussed.
