A survey in the Netherlands (2011) found out that the annual revenue generated by museums equals the total amount of public funding received. In other words every Euro invested in the museums sector by public funders creates another Euro in income. So why is it so hard to convince public funders that museums are worthwhile to have and invest in?

Museums have changed dramatically over the last 2 decades: not just where their core activities are concerned but also their role in an ever more changing global society. Some museums in Europe haven’t yet embarked on this change process, and as the financial crisis deepens these museums are even more at risk from further cuts in public funding.
This conference will gather museums professionals from all over Europe to explore new business models and innovative approaches to museums funding and share creative methods of good management practice.
