THE PROJECT PHASES
THE STRUCTURE OF THE EMEE PROJECT
Over the course of four phases, the EMEE project aimed to apply the ideas of its underlying theoreti- cal concept of Change of Perspective to a practical context.
THE FIRST PHASE OF THE PROJECT
During the  rst phase of the project, the partners began with a Mapping Process that had the aim of providing an overview of the current museum dis- course concerning the EMEE topics. Drawing on ten best practice examples each, the partners selected and analyzed how museums have treated the topic of ‘Europe’ in their collections so far, what opportunities there are for attracting so-called ‘non-visitors’ (bridg- ing-the-gap), and how the option of visitor participa- tion and activation has been dealt with up to this point. Moreover, lists of current research projects and pub- lications on these topics have been compiled. During the  rst phase of the EMEE project, the partners were able to build on this foundation and developed  ve so- called ‘Toolkits’: these offered an application-oriented presentation of the concept of Change of Perspective

(COP) for all kinds of museums, as well as encom- passing different focuses and thus creating a bridge between theory and practice. Additionally, the project partners developed accompanying COP-workshops, which are designed to train museum experts and in- terested non-professionals and which will therefore allow for the use of the concept in the long run.
