Moderna Museet has pursued a variety of research projects over the years. A fundamental condition for previous and current research projects is that they are based on the Museum’s exhibitions, history and collection, and that they utilise the Museum’s skills in curating, conservation, technology and learning activities.
A few different structures have been tested for research-related projects, and several collaborations with universities and other academic institutions have been undertaken. The results are shared through internal and external seminars, major symposiums, articles in national and international publications, monographs and anthologies, exhibitions and catalogues.

Moderna Museet’s assignment includes making our extensive collection accessible, preparing background material for future exhibitions, and enhancing day-to-day activities. Moderna Museet’s research team reports to the Exhibition & Collection Department, which also includes the archives and library. A research leader is in charge of these activities, which are pursued by both internal and external scholars. The Museum’s research projects are partially funded by external sources.
The Sience Council of Moderna Museet consists of participants from Stockholm University, Södertörn University and Uppsala University.
