Board of Trustees of the Universalmuseum Joanneum

Tasks of the Board of Trustees:

  • The Board of Trustees (Kuratorium) is a committee appointed by the Provincial Government of Styria, and its members are active in an honorary capacity.
  • The Board of Trustees takes note of the interests of the Universal Joanneum and promotes them both conceptually and materially.
  • The curators are committed to the founding concepts and goals of the Universal Joanneum. They ensure that the Universal Joanneum acts in accordance with its founding mission as an institution dedicated to collection, research and education.
  • The Board of Trustees represents the interests of the Universal Joanneum in public and draws the attention of the museum’s management to the public’s needs.
  • The Board of Trustees sees itself as a link between the museum and broader society.
  • The Board of Trustees advises and supports the Provincial Government of Styria and the management. It is in direct contact with management. It sees itself as a Supervisory Board (Aufsichtsrat) in terms of ideas, its function being supportive rather than controlling in a business sense.
  • The Support Associations (Fördervereine) of the Universalmuseum Joanneum are represented on the Board of Trustees in the interests of furthering initiatives.
