NEMO offered its expert opinion to EC study on fostering knowledge valorisation

Upon invitation, NEMO participated in an interview on 17 November for a study on “Fostering knowledge valorisation through the arts and cultural institutions” that IDEA Consult is conducting on behalf of the DG for Research & Innovation of the European Commission.

Given the role NEMO plays at European level in representing museums, IDEA Consult reached out to NEMO to discuss how museums may contribute to the valorisation of knowledge, suggest literature and possible case studies as well as to identify important cross-cutting themes and issues

The main objective of the study is to investigate how arts and cultural institutions across Europe are responding to the opportunities to foster innovation and knowledge valorisation as prioritised in the new European Research Area (ERA). The study will examine conditions, support mechanisms and policy instruments that would enable the arts and cultural institutions, in collaboration with research, innovation and knowledge transfer actors, to play an important role in the uptake of new creative solutions that derive from research and are co-created with citizens and industry. Eventually, it will provide key insights on how knowledge valorisation policy can strengthen the impact of the arts and cultural institutions and their role in co-creation and demand-driven knowledge valorisation.
