About the CIMUSET Award

CIMUSET wants to highlight and celebrate outstanding, innovative practices within science and technology museums and science centres through the CIMUSET Award.

The CIMUSET Award is established on the belief that science and technology museums and science centres can change people and societies and thus contribute to the creation of a more equal, sustainable, and peaceful world.

The world as we know it is changing rapidly. We are faced with challenges on a scale that humanity has never seen before. We need to act together to create a more economic, social, environmental, and culturally sustainable society. The CIMUSET Award is based on the UN 2030 agenda for sustainable development and nominated projects must account for how the project is linked to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The aim of the CIMUSET award is to highlight innovative projects that showcase new hybrid museological practices, which can bring science and technology museums and science centres to the next level, and place science institutions at the core of the transformation that the world desperately needs.
