During the period 2011-2013, the National Council for Cultural Affairs provided expert representatives for two OMC groups, ‘Cultural Diversity, Intercultural Dialogue and Accessible and Inclusive Culture’ and ‘Cultural and Creative Industries’. National museum (the National Museum of Fine Arts) took part in the group ‘Cultural Heritage, Including Mobility of Collections’.

OMC, the Open Method of Coordination, is a mechanism facilitating communication between EU institutions and their member states. It is also a forum for cooperation on issues where the area concerned is governed by national legislation rather than by Community law.
