MuseoSpace is a foundation with a cultural purpose that uses its innovative nature to achieve its goals. It aims to contribute to sustainable cultural development while strengthening the innovation capacity of museums to respond to a fast-changing environment.

Museospace implies innovation

MuseoSpace Stichting is a non-profit organisation founded to support the cultural landscape, aiming to accelerate museums’ relevance and impact by encouraging and enabling their innovation potential, so that more innovative, relevant, and impactful museums can be built.

MuseoSpace is building on three pillars to achieve its mission: 

  • Research & Innovation Activities – Strengthening common knowledge and expertise. 
  • Network & Collaboration – Building bridges across disciplines, countries, and sectors.
  • Promotion & Empowerment – Contributing to boosting innovation while promoting Europe’s rich culture, values, and interests.

MuseoSpace activities are designed to provide resources and tools which will facilitate communication, collaboration, and knowledge exchange while promoting Europe’s rich culture. By building a powerful innovation ecosystem, MuseoSpace brings together partners across disciplines, countries, and sectors, that strengthen the collaboration among museums, R&D and experts, industry, and CCIs and increase international competitiveness of museums at national, regional and local levels. The Culture Innovation Community is using its cross-sector network that invest, support, initialise and develop programs and raise awareness for policymakers to incorporate culture-driven innovation into their policymaking, and encourage governments and companies to integrate culture innovation into their funding programs.
