Summer news 

While some things slow down over the summer, NEMO was able to pick up speed to prepare for NEMO's 25th Annual Conference Open Heart Surgery - The Value of Museums Collections. We are excited that registration has opened for the conference that will be held in Ghent, Belgium, from 9-12 November 2017! Have a look at the programme and our exciting speakers, discussing different types and challenges of contemporary collecting, as well as the political and social effect museums can or should have on their environment, and their relevance in a diverse, connected society.

The past month did not only see NEMO prepare for #NEMOac2017, but also saw some important decisions by the European Parliaments Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) and the European Commission, as well as new publications and further events at European level.
