The Micheletti Award was established by the Foundation and Kenneth Hudson in 1996 for the recognition of excellence in the specific sector of European science and industry museums. Applications are welcomed from scientific, technical and industrial museums and science centres, both long-established and recently opened.
The Jury is looking especially for the creative use of industrial and scientific collections, combined with an innovative interpretative approach. The role of the museum in its locality is also important, as is its approach to the social history of the subject.
Closing date for applications 31 July 2011
