Networks build trust, nurture relationships, set aligned agendas and help to exchange knowledge and experiences to help their members to learn and build their capacity. NEMO offers a platform for museums and museum organisations to develop shared projects across borders.
- Networks provide information, experience and trusted partners to help members work together at an international level.
- They are coordinating entities that develop intercultural skills that act as catalyst for knowledge specialisation and provide unique levels of expertise.
- They raise awareness of new challenges and work together proactively to shape the responses to them.
- Networks provide a model for sustainable co-operation because they are based on shared purposes that build long-term communities based on shared goals.
NEMO is participating in various EU-funded projects that are actively helping to strengthen and professionalise the European museum sector, including:
The Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliance funded project "Cultural Heritage Actions to Refine Training, Education and Roles (CHARTER)" will address skills shortages and unemployment in the heritage sector by creating a blue print for sector skills strategy and development. The project will start in early 2021.
This EU Creative Europe funded project aims to help museums increase their impact on and service to society. MOI will help museums to develop their capacity to meet the demands of a changing, more diverse, increasingly digital and ageing society. NEMO is one of 11 project partners. The Finnish Heritage Agency is leading the project.
This EU Horizon 2020 funded project wants project partners to empower policy makers and decision makers in the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) to fully understand the social and economic impact of digitalisation in their sectors and address the need for innovative (re)use of cultural assets.
Within the framework of Germany's presidency of the Council of the European Union, NEMO is co-organising the first of three museum conferences on social responsibility. The next two will be organised in Portugal and Slovenia.
This project aims to contribute to the development of the museum field in the South Caucasus region and to establish an International Training Programme (ITP) that will benefit museumers (museum personnel) in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Be Museumer is funded by Creative Europe.
About Be Museumers
NEMO and ViMM – the Virtual Multimodal Museum Project – have signed an agreement to work together. ViMM is working towards defining and supporting high-quality policies, strategic decision making, the use of breakthrough technological developments and nurturing an evidence-based view of growth and development impacted by Digital Cultural Heritage.
CrowdHeritage is an open platform where cultural heritage institutions can share their collections’ metadata so that everybody can help to improve the information. Cultural institutions want to tap into the knowledge and power of the public to make their digital collections more accessible. In turn, contributors will get their share of glory and a lot of gratitude.
