CARMAH is grateful to receive support from multiple national and international partner organisations. On the one hand, there are those who contribute to our work as financial supporters, such as the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation or the European Commission. Some of our partners, on the other hand, not only finance researcher positions, but also complement our research as collaboration partners, such as the Museum of Natural History or the national museums of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation. And with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, more specifically the Department of European Ethnology, CARMAH has found its physical and intellectual home. On this page we introduce who we work with, and how they contribute to CARMAH.
At the Central Institute Hermann von Helmholtz-Zentrum für Kulturtechnik (HZK), scientists and practitioners work together on the interdisciplinary cross-sectional topics “collections” and “exhibitions” – interdisciplinary, international, and excellent. The activation, use, and further development of the decentralized academic collections of the Humboldt-Universität in research, teaching, and education is a central task of the HZK. The collection directors and custodians at the institutes are supported in this process, among other things by the development of standards and recommendations for the handling and preservation of academic collections.
