We meet the challenges of the 21st century with stewardship, participation and sustainability. With our research and commitment to nature, we are transforming into an open and integrated research museum with the themes of biodiversity, evolution, science and society. In doing so, our integrated and open approach enables novel, multi-perspective forms of research and knowledge transfer.
Our responsibility for the global, cultural and scientific heritage as well as socially relevant research questions are our central driving forces. In this sense, we will open up our collection in a sustainable way towards an open, digital-analog research infrastructure.
Our actions take place in critical self-reflection with our history and current practices. From this, we develop theoretical and practical tools for investigating the connections between nature, culture, and politics, as well as novel formats for collaborative knowledge practices. In doing so, we learn from our partners from diverse social, cultural, societal, as well as geographic backgrounds, and develop the future of the museum with a diversity of perspectives.
