The Critical Visitor

Het Nieuwe Instituut is a partner within the NWO The Critical Visitor project that investigates how heritage institutions can bring about new forms of inclusiveness and accessibility through their organisation, collections and exhibition policy. The five-year research project is being conducted by a consortium of fifteen cultural and scientific institutions.

TACK Network

Communities of Tacit Knowledge: Architecture and its Ways of Knowing, or TACK, is an Innovative Training Network, as part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions within the European Framework Program Horizon 2020. It trains young researchers in understanding the specific knowledge that architects use when designing buildings and cities. TACK gathers ten major academic institutions, three leading cultural architectural institutions as well as nine distinguished architecture design offices. Collaboratively these partners offer an innovative PhD training program on the nature of tacit knowledge in architecture, resulting in ten parallel PhD projects.
