The project partners decide to move the Mu.SA final conference “The future of museum professionals in the digital era” online due to COVID-19. NEMO Secretary General Julia Pagel was invited to give a keynote speech on 15 April 2020. She spoke about NEMO’s survey on the coronavirus’ impact on the museum sector and how museums can use the crisis to expand their digital visibility, despite financial cuts. NEMO was an associated partner of the project, which was supported through Erasmus+ / Sector Skills Alliances.

Mu.SA project designed four new occupational profiles for the museum sector: Digital Strategy Manager, Digital Collections Curator, Digital Interactive Experience Developer and Online Community Manager and developed the corresponding learning pathways.

The project produced professional training programs consisting of a MOOC (which attracted more than 5.000 trainees worldwide) and four blended training courses in digital and transferable competences as well as in 21st century skills, open to professionals and experts of European museums and the cultural sector.
