The network is supported by partners on a project-by-project basis. The announcement of the Wandering Seminar f. e. was followed by an impressive public interest in the format and in substantial participation. Thus it was possible to co-opt four museums highly innovative in their attempts to bridge museum work and academic science history. In Berlin, contacts to the Technical University and the Humboldt University intensified via co-organised events; some local museums also presented themselves as ‘treasure troves’ for diverse scientific objects. For the and its focus on the museum as a working place for historians of science we found Cooperation Partners at different institutes, which are well known for their expertise in the History of Science.
New partnerships are welcomed.
