The LEM Working Group continues the work of the LEM - The Learning Museum Network, an EU-funded project from 2010-2013. The group continues to explore topics around the fields of museum education, audience development, intercultural dialogue and lifelong learning.

Through various study visits to different museums in Europe, the group will learn and research on specific subjects as well as encourage the exchange of information among museum professionals in Europe.

The most recent and upcoming Working Group activities are presented here.
