How Can Greater Financial Stability Be Achieved For The Portuguese Institute of Museums and Conservation (IMC)?

This presentation is the synopsis of my research into how the IMC (Institute of Museums and Conservation), Portugal’s largest public body for the management of museums can achieve greater financial stability.For my research I looked at the 2010 finances of the Institute, its management models and that of other cultural organizations in Portugal and Europe. In the presentation I primarily address the issue of the ticket sales management, the overriding fiscal, legal and managerial models conditioning the flow of money in and out of the organization, as well as cost-cutting measures.
