Research and development
Research and development work at the National Museum is generally conducted in connection with the museum’s own exhibitions, collection activities, publications and conferences.
The museum staff collaborate with other museums by contributing with their expertise to publications as editors, authors and specialists in their respective fields. In addition, several of the museum’s staff serve on boards and in committees at other organisations both nationally and internationally.
The National Museum’s Research Committee meets four times each year and has the following members:
Audun Eckhoff, director – committee chairperson
Nils Ohlsen, departmental director, Old Masters and Modern Art
Nina Berre, departmental director, Architecture
Widar Halén, departmental director, Industrial Art and Design
Sabrina van der Ley, departmental director, Contemporary Art
Francoise Hanssen-Bauer, departmental director, Collection Management
Denise Hagströmer, staff representative
Øivind Storm Bjerke, professor of art history, University of Oslo
Turid Aakhus, secretary
Publications about research and development work by National Museum staff are documented in the academic research database CRISTIN.
