On 6 June 2017 a group of museum professionals with shared interests in contemporary collecting science, technology and medicine assembled at the National Museum of Scotland to share best practice and lessons learned in this area. After presentations from some of those involved in Scottish collections, different perspectives were provided (UK-wide, from learning, and from another discipline).The workshop concluded with a roundtable discussion during which all participants reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of the sector. This report includes summaries and commentaries of the presentations and a round-up of the discussion.
