Professional Development

Museums contribute to a sense of belonging, shared values and solidarity among a society in constant change, helping to preserve the integrity of the European project. The empowerment and capacity building of the people who work in museums and take care of cultural heritage are at the core of successful museum work and meaningful social impact.

The importance of life-long learning and continuous training in all aspects of museum work as a way to help museum professionals to embrace new demands, and to enhance the value of museums to society, is not fully acknowledged and supported.

NEMO advocates for support through targeted capacity building programmes for museum professionals that will equip them with new and emerging skills as an integral part of contemporary museum work. NEMO offers museum professionals European capacity building programmes to share experiences and knowledge and to foster a European dimension in museum work.
