The EMA Pool of Experts

The European Museum Academy gathers a group of experts active in specific sectors of the museum and heritage world with a proved experience in European programs as well as in national and local development projects. They contribute to the development of the Academy in terms of researching, lecturing, training, writing, consulting etc. In this way EMA benefits of a wide range of skills developed during the years and is able to offer a comprehensive variety of services based on a sound knowledge of museums and heritage issues. This body is constantly implemented by new entries.
