Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


To collaborate across organisational contexts is not an easy task, but to do so and to succeed can be vital for reaching creative and innovative results. This paper is an empirical exploration of contextual challenges for collaborative museum design, focusing on the interplay between museums and ICT design companies. Based on empirical findings, two kinds of challenges are presented as particularly interesting in relation to this context: Structure related challenges, and value and practice related challenges.
