What is the IWM Institute?
The IWM Institute is Imperial War Museums’ new innovation hub, bridging the gap between academic research and public engagement. Our programme explores the world’s most pressing conflict related issues through the contextual lens of history. Using challenging debates and discussions, original research projects, and dynamic animations and podcasts, the IWM Institute is redefining the boundaries of museum practice. Working with world-leading institutions and a network of experts from the fields of arts and culture, technology, policy, academia and the charity sector, we take a considered long view on contemporary conflict, helping people draw connections between the past and present.
