Research at The University Museum of Bergen
The University Museum of Bergen is a branch of the University of Bergen. The research is the basis, but also integrated with the other main activities in the Museum: Collection, systematisation, preservation, research, and dissemination of knowledge.
The University Museum performs research in both cultural and natural science disciplines. The collections are the basis of the research, and the intentions are to enhance appreciation and communication of these. It is a vital function for the University Museum to stimulate research where methods and perspectives of both cultural and natural science supplement each other.
The Museum has an obligation to maintain the wide range of artefacts and objects already present in the Museum´s collections. In the chosen strategic priorities, the University Museum shall represent excellent research competence at an international level.
