With this catalogue, the project team aims to showcase innovative and effective solutions in the management of cultural heritage in Europe, which are based on cooperation among various (heritage) institutions, ideally including higher education units. These solutions may consist of standard practices (as conducted by museums, art galleries, cultural animation centres, etc.), large or small-scale projects, grassroots initiatives, or one-off activities. They can be local, national, or international undertakings in the partners’ countries. These ‘best practices’ were meant to disseminate good examples of collaboration and to share innovative ideas, ideally developed synergistically. The main requirement was that they would address societal challenges (e.g., in the context of development, climate change, inclusion, etc.) and have the potential to inspire social change (such as increased public participation, working with marginalized groups or groups at risk of social exclusion)
