CIMUSET 47th annual conference, Kyoto 2nd -4th September 2019
Within the ICOM’s general conference Theme “Museums as Cultural Hubs: The Future of Tradition”, the
International Committee for Museums and Collections of Science & Technology (CIMUSET) established its own
program for the triennial, in cooperation with the National Museum of Nature and Science, Tokyo. CIMUSET 47th
conference in Kyoto debated around a topical theme witch concerns all technical-scientific museums and science
centres in the world: “Traditions for a Sustainable Future.” : How can science and technology museums advance
ecological, economic, cultural and social sustainability? What is sustainable scientific and technical heritage? How
can science and technology museums be spaces for change? What is the role of traditional know-how and
