The Business of Partnerships

A session at DISH 2011

Thursday 8th December, 2011

2:00pm to 3:30pm (AMT)

If one word should be picked as central out of the publication Business Model Innovation Cultural Heritage, presented at DISH2009, it should be collaboration.

Collaboration offers huge benefits to heritage. In the back end it allows for more efficiency by sharing and even out sourcing of knowledge, means and skills. In the front end collaboration brings the necessary economy of scale, cross-institutional services and reuse of heritage by existing value chains, like education, research, tourism and entertainment.

The institutions brought together in this session all went into strategic partnerships, both within and outside the heritage domain.
