The Leibniz Association
Top-level research into cultural history
The most artefacts, the largest exhibition space and the strongest international focus: The Germanische Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg (GMN) is the largest museum of its kind in the German-speaking world. It is also the only one of its kind in the Leibniz Association, which also includes research museums. The GMN and FAU have strengthened their long-standing partnership and in a joint appointment procedure, both institutions filled the positions of Director of the Museum and Chair of Museum Research and Cultural History by appointing Daniel Hess. This collaboration forms a link between the field of humanities in Erlangen and the cultural-historical research institute and also offers students at FAU new opportunities for putting their theoretical knowledge into practice.
