First paragraph: The Museum University Partnership Initiative (MUPI) is a collaboration between Share Academy and the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE), funded by Arts Council England (ACE).
This report communicates and discusses the results of a specific component of MUPI, a 45-day long pilot study to begin:
• Characterising the realities and impacts of museum university partnerships in England;
• Identifying power asymmetries in museum university partnerships, and understanding how they can be minimised;
• Examining how funding could be (re-)structured to facilitate more successful museum university partnerships.
