Through our strategic ambitions of curiosity, creativity, collaboration and sustainability, MAAS is committed to advancing knowledge through research. Our evolving collection is a key part of the way in which we inspire and foster scholarly inquiry, sharing new knowledge we generate with the public.
Guided by our Research Strategy (2015-2020), we will play a key role in identifying areas of future research and investigation to enable us to continue undertaking a rigorous program of interdisciplinary research across applied arts and sciences.
Our research will focus around eight key areas:
- Health and Medicine
- Physical sciences
- Architecture and the Built Environment
- Design and Decorative Arts
- Contemporary Culture
MAAS is committed to building a vibrant and supportive research culture enabling our researchers to partner with those in cultural and academic institutions to develop innovative approaches to researching material culture and the museum context.
