The idea of being able to act as a knowledge institute is paramount. This is due to the fact that there are many great collections to be found all over the world, but it is still difficult for outsiders to gain access to all these collections. There must be a place where all this valuable and important heritage is collected and, particularly, shared. This will be achieved by Design Museum Dedel by setting up and supporting joint research programmes with, for example, universities, Universities of Applied Sciences, cultural institutions and archives. This research will be shared with the world, this heritage must be visible!
