The Working Group Museums and Creative Industries was founded in 2014 and is looking into the mapping of various sorts of cooperation among museums and creative sector agents in order to raise the profile of museums in the context of creative industries, learn more about, measure and map the value and benefit of, and stimulate future cooperations between museums and creative industries. The think tank Creative Museum has been coordinating the working group Museums and Creative Industries within the NEMO since 2014.

The Working Group Museums and Creative Industries will contribute to the increase of knowledge and expertise regarding cooperation between museums and creative industries in view to growth and jobs - the strategic objectives of th Europe 2020 Strategy.

NEMO's Working Group Museums and Creative Industries published a report to map cooperation in June 2015. As one of the key aspects for successful developments of creative industries, co-operations need to be analysed for their characteristics to figure out which factors play an important role for synergies and help increase the impact on the economy. For this analysis a methodology was developed and tested. The methodology was developed further and made available in the toolkit Museums and Creative Industries: Mapping Cooperation in November 2015. It also contains results from the first application of the toolkit to examine museums in Latvia. The research continues throughout 2016 and 2017 in several other European countries.
