gest challenges for the strengthening of the European dimension within a multi-perspective framework. Promoting continuous further training for the museum staff can prove extremely useful to overcome this chal- lenge. In this regard, the EMEE workshops can be seen as a  rst step in the right direction, although – and this is another recommendation for policy-makers and stakeholders – further training particularly in this  eld needs to be supported more on a European level.
The insights gained during the experimental  eld research also show that the EMEE workshops, Toolkits and Exemplary COP-units are only able to make a useful contribution to the successful application of the COP 1 and to the strengthening of the European dimension of cul- tural heritage, if museums become more open-minded and are willing to give up their deeply ingrained regional and national perspectives to explore new interpretations.
However, a project of museum development alone cannot effec- tuate this change of attitude. Rather, it must become part of society’s general outlook that includes (or rejects) multi-perspective interpreta- tions and plurality of viewpoints as part of a multicultural population. The experiences gained throughout this project thus prompt us to give an- other recommendation for policy-makers and stakeholders, namely that a European competition and/or a European award for local, regional and national museums that make an decisive effort to strengthen their Euro- pean dimension with the means available could stimulate a process that provides incentives and encouraging examples even for those museums with a more traditional outlook.
