NetworkNEW DEADLINE! ICOM launches a new museum research programme

An exciting opportunity to support the global museum community through research. ICOM, in partnership with the University of Shanghai, has established a global research and exchange centre ICOM-IMREC (the International Research and Exchange Centre).

ICOM-IMREC is calling for applications to explore the state of public funding for museums which has been in decline in many countries for over a decade.

We welcome proposals from consortiums of academic institutions and museums working in cross-geographical and cross-disciplinary collaboration.

The deadline for applications is 31 October 2022. You can find the brief for the targeted research call here and the link to the online application portal below. If you have any questions, please contact

Application form

Note: The working language of ICOM-IMREC is English and the report for this project will be in English. For this reason, the research call is being sent in one language rather than the official three.
