exchange of curators on the cultural heritage on-site and ample opportunities for both sides to become fa- miliar with hitherto neglected object collections and the local view on it. At the same time, the project’s experimental focus showed that, empirically, the suc- cess of the international collaboration depends largely on the experts’ exchange revolving around well-de-  ned topic areas. Only then the scienti c discourse can lead to innovative re-interpretations of object groups that include transregional and European per- spectives alongside a regional and a national angle.
The EMEE project succeeded in overcoming this challenge by setting up an international network of mu- seum experts, cultural workers, scenographers, media- tors in the  eld of history culture and media experts, who all share a keen interest in the Change of Perspec- tive and its potential as an innovative approach to the
strengthening of a European dimension of our cultural heritage. This network proved to be an extremely im- portant resource for the work of the project team. Therefore, our recommendation for policy-makers and stakeholders is to continue to support this network to make the ideas of the EMEE project, which were, by and large, effective and feasible, available to an ever growing circle of museums and interested parties.
This brief overview was intended to delineate future areas of further research and strategic meas- ures within the  eld of European museum devel- opment. It also intended to call for further steps to continue this promising process started by the EMEE project. For this purpose, conducting additional re- search in interdisciplinary theoretico-practical Europe- an networks would be highly advisable to be able to provide scienti c evidence to support future  ndings.
