In 2017-2019, the Ministry of Education and Culture published three calls for museums for covering the costs of artists' exhibition compensation. The calls were used to test a new form of subsidy (i.e. specific grant), which would be aimed at promoting good contractual and compensation practices as recommended in the review of a Ministry-established working group on the subject (2016).
The results of the calls for submission of applications were as follows:
* In 2017, 22 museums applied for a total of EUR 124,575 in subsidies. A total of EUR 102,015 was granted to 21 museums.
* In 2018, 33 museums applied for EUR 261,513 in total. All 33 applicants received EUR 249,150 in total.
* In 2019, 52 museums applied for a total of EUR 484,150. In total, all applicants received EUR 307,450.

An external evaluation of the pilot has been commissioned and is expected to be finished in spring 2020. The Ministry will use the results of the evaluation and other information gathered throughout the trial to assess and determine future measures regarding the subject.
