Museums are important actors in the economy and the creative sectors. They are at the heart of successful urban regeneration and cultural tourism initiatives. They are places of, actors in and partners for the creative economy.
Museums are not fully acknowledged and supported as actors in the economy and the creative sectors. There is still little comprehensive and comparable data available and an appropriate framework to measure aggregate economic value and spill-over effects of museums is lacking.
NEMO wants to ensure that museums are recognised and supported as key assets to urban and regional development, to a flourishing tourism industry and as drivers for the economy and the creative industries.
