The encounter between a museum and a university is often initiated by the search for content. The chosen researcher sees it as an opportunity to disseminate his or her research to a wide audience while the content seeker looks for the most salient or “front-line” information. Occasionally the chemistry is so good that its enthusiasm leads to even greater collaboration: the search for funding, program development, and exposition results. Visitors may also become research subjects or contribute to citizen science. The proposed session will bring together four pairs of partners (1 museum or science centre and 1 university) who are collaborating or have collaborated in various dissemination or research projects. Together they will discuss the benefits and challenges of these partnerships.

La rencontre entre un musée et une université est souvent initiée par la recherche de contenus. Le chercheur choisi y voit une occasion de diffuser ses recherches à un large public, tandis que le chercheur de contenus recherche les informations les plus marquantes ou "de première ligne". Parfois, la chimie est si bonne que son enthousiasme conduit à une collaboration encore plus grande menant à  la recherche de financement, le développement de programmes et des expositions. Les visiteurs peuvent également devenir des sujets de recherche ou contribuer à la science citoyenne. La session proposée réunira quatre paires de partenaires (1 musée ou centre de sciences et 1 université) qui collaborent ou ont collaboré à divers projets de diffusion ou de recherche. Ensemble, ils discuteront des avantages et des défis de ces partenariats.
