The NEMO Working Group on Digitalisation and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) supports European museums to fully tap the potential that digitalisation holds for museums. A particular focus lies on the opportunities and challenges of opening and using museum collections online.

Our Actions

  • We identify new processes, tasks and challenges for the museums on digitalisation and IPR.
  • We provide decision makers, museum organisations and stakeholders with relevant information.
  • We offer support and a space to share experiences and best practice in the digital context for museums.
  • We shape NEMO’s actions in the fields of digitalisation and copyright legislation with and for museums.

We are currently working on...

  • Monitoring the Digital Single Market Directive regarding the relevance for museums.
  • A study to gain an overview of the legal and organisational status quo of museum collections in the different European countries.
