The Professorship of Museology at JMU Würzburg and Museum Studies at HU Cairo have been working closely together since 2015. They offer a joint double degree Master's programme with up to six exchange students per year. Other events ensure an exchange of lecturers and joint online or hybrid events for all students. Numerous non-university partners (e.g. museums, agencies) support the exchange. The project „MuseumsChange: Diverse, Digital, Socially Designed: Museums as Agents of Change and Social Inclusion“ is financially supported by the DAAD.
