These initial outcomes certainly need to be tested further in future. However, upon concluding the project, a  rst recom- mendation for policy-makers and stakeholders can be given with regard to its future potential: In view of what has been mentioned above, con- ducting further studies would undoubtedly be worthwhile and provide valuable insights.
RE-INTERPRETING OBJECTS FROM A EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVE (COP 1)
The empirical study placed particular emphasis on evaluating the practi- cal potential of the concept of COP 1 – i.e. the re-interpretation of ob- jects and topics from a transregional/European angle that links and inte- grates both regional and national with European perspectives. For this purpose, a multi-perspective approach to, as well as interpretation and presentation of objects is required to convey to the audience that a given museum object can simultaneously be placed within a regional, national, European and even global context (for the basic concept of ‘European identity’, cf. pp. 13-16). and that these different levels of meaning can reinforce and complement each other in an elucidating way.
