The conference will consist of plenary sessions in the morning and afternoon. Each plenary is preceded by two keynotes that will offer innovative and stimulating inputs on the following topics: What is regarded as ‘good’ research in museum? Challenges for research in museums today. Collectives and collaborations to stimulate research. Visions and futures for research in museums. Plenaries will be followed by break-out sessions in parallel workshops. A final plenary will present conclusions and potentially a joint declaration.
