Sampling and analysis of material from NTNU University Museum’s cultural history collections

Sampling and analysis of material from NTNU University Museum’s cultural history collections

Material held in the cultural history collections of the NTNU University Museum are a non-renewable scientific source material. Nevertheless, NTNU University Museum provides the opportunity for sampling and scientific analysis of material in these collections to researchers from research institutions at home and abroad. Permission is subjected to the approval of an application for sampling and analysis by the Analysis Review Committee, Department of Archaeology and Cultural History. Evaluation of a request takes into account generally recognised principles of ethical conduct in research, and a balance between long-term preservation considerations and the need for knowledge. A precondition is that the requested material is not currently being used by the NTNU University Museum in dissemination or research, and the museum has the resources necessary to carry out the academic follow-up of such requests.

Applicants are referred to the NTNU University Museum’s Guidelines for requesting sampling and analysis of cultural history materials in Norwegian university museums and the NTNU University Museum Application for Sampling form

Applications for sampling and analysis of material in the cultural history collections shall consist of a completed NTNU University Museum application form and project description. These shall be submitted to: analyseutvalget@vm.ntnu.no

Only complete applications will be processed.

The Analysis Review Committee reviews applications on an ongoing basis.
For any questions about sampling and analysis, please contact the Analysis Review Committee by email at analyseutvalget@vm.ntnu.no
