European Museum Academy has been set up in the Netherlands as a not-for-profit foundation.

The academy was set up following a shake-up at the European Museum Forum (see first link below).

According to a statement, 12 former European Museum of the Year Award judges are members of the organisation, which aims to “stimulate innovative thinking” in European museums.

The academy will also administrate the Micheletti Prize for scientific, technical and industrial museums. Entries for next year’s prize must be submitted this month.

The winner of the 2010 European Museum of the Year Award was the Ozeaneum, in Stralsund, Germany.
