European Museum Forum

EMF is an independent organisation, founded in 1977 by Kenneth Hudson and registered in England as a Charity Trust.
The Organisation is under the auspices of the Council of Europe and under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Fabiola of Belgium.

EMF runs the European Museum of the Year scheme and acts also as the Jury for the Council of Europe Museum Prize.
The Secretariat of EMF has its head office in Bristol (UK) and EMF mantains an Archive at the Institut fur Museumskunde in Berlin accessible to researchers, where information on every museum candidate for the European Museum of the Year Award since 1977 has been collected.

The objective of the Award scheme is to recognise, encourage and publicise new developments in museums which are adapting exceptionally well to the changing cultural, social and economic conditions of Europe.

Thanks to BRICKS, the Application Forms for EMYA 2008 are available on line till 15 March 2007. This tool will not only speed up the procedures, but it will make available to the museums community a collection of digital material focused on innovative practices in the European museum field. For the online submission visit the website

EMF runs also a regular programme of professional workshops and international conferences which are publicised on its site as well as on the BRICKS community site.
