On 16 April, NEMO launched a toolkit to help cultural organisations across Europe access EU funding better. The “Cross-Border Cooperation for Museums” toolkit includes an overview of current funding opportunities. NEMO hopes museums and cultural organisations can use the guide to participate in EU funding programmes.
The European network organisation wants to “empower” museums to look across the border for international collaborations, NEMO stated in a press release. The tool offers museums and cultural organisations a step-by-step guide for turning a project idea into a successful proposal. “NEMO wants to show them the added value of cooperation for their internationalisation, learning and training activities.”
The press release also mentions that NEMO wants to assist national museum umbrella organisations in helping members use funding programmes. This is part of NEMO’s efforts to understand better how the EU’s funding mechanisms work. The organisation stated is there “to provide members and the museum community at large with accessible information about funding and promote the many benefits of cooperation.”
