LEM - The Learning Museum Network Project

A permanent network of museums and cultural heritage organisations, to insure that they can play an active role with regard to lifelong learning and to raise awareness among decision makers at European level.

This space provides visitors the opportunity to learn about museums and lifelong learning, to exchange ideas, information and materials, as well as to find out more about the project. We encourage visitors to participate in discussions available on the website.

It is apparent museums in the 21st century can play an active role in lifelong learning society by integrating collections, spaces and learning programmes into a new joined up framework that connects formal and informal learning providers, increasing access to cultural life and fostering social cohesion, innovation and creativity. The LEM - Learning Museum Network project aims to create a permanent network of museums and cultural heritage organisations and address the challenges of the EU 2020 Strategy and to play an active role with regard to lifelong learning.

@diversity invites you to a vivid exchange forum about disruptive ideas and entrepreneurship in the cultural and creative sectors. The EU pilot project @diversity – innovative ideas for cultural and creative industries in Europe – wants to share experiences and lessons learnt from a 2-year competition and incubation program that transformed innovative ideas into new business models to find private funding. Apply for The Creative Shift Forum before the 8th of August 2014. The number of seats is limited. Your application will be carefully reviewed based on our sector representation criteria and your participation will be confirmed by 22nd of August.

The theme “Food for curious minds” offers room for countless metaphoric interpretations but also invites to tackle the concrete topic of food and energy, a burning global challenge. It has been chosen to echo the theme of Universal EXPO 2015 in Milan (“Feeding the Planet – Energy for life” 1 May – 30 October). Science museums and science centres are proud to provide their visitors with food for thought. To feed savvy audiences delightful and novel flavours, science engagement professionals need to nurture their own curious minds! Come to Trento to get plenty of food – for body and mind. The call for session proposals will be open from early August til mid October.

Less than two months after the adoption of the far-reaching EU Council Conclusions on cultural heritage as a strategic resource for a sustainable Europe, the European Commission has adopted on July 22 2014 its Communication which paves the way for an integrated approach to cultural heritage in Europe. This important policy document aims to help Member States and stakeholders to make the most of the significant support for heritage available under EU instruments and also calls for stronger cooperation at EU level to share ideas and best practices, which can feed into national heritage policies and governance.

The Evaluation Report of the project on Evaluation of Cultural Policies and EU-Funded Programmes as Promoters of Cultural Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue in the Balkans/Southeast Europe (SEE) summarises the research experiences and practices in relation to cultural policies and EU-funded programmes that promote cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue in the Balkan region.
