Heritage Academy Organisation

Heritage Academy will support the development of knowledge in cultural institutions and museums. This in turn generates new research questions and new educational opportunities. The Academy thus becomes an important part of the fulfillment of the university's Third Mission. On the horizon we see joint research- and development projects with regional, national and international focus.
