● Queen Silikit Textile Museum, Thailand

In 2003, Her Majesty Queen Sirikit requested permission to use a then-vacant building on the grounds of the Grand Palace to house a new museum of textiles. The 1870 Ratsadakorn-bhibhathana Building was graciously granted for this purpose by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The office building—for many decades the Ministry of Finance—was completely renovated and turned into a state-of-the-art museum; its modern facilities include a new lobby, galleries, storage, an education studio, library, lecture hall, and Thailand’s first dedicated textile conservation laboratory. Nonetheless, its past is still very much present, in the preservation of its original façade and many internal architectural details. The museum’s mission is to collect, display, preserve, and serve as a center for all who wish to learn about textiles, past and present, from Southeast Asia, South Asia, and East Asia, with a special emphasis on the textiles of, and related to, the royal court and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit. Additionally, its goal is to create public awareness of Thai identity 
and culture, and the beauty of Thai traditional textiles, through research, exhibition, 
and interpretation. The museum’s objectives, set by Her Majesty, are being achieved by 
the museum staff, guided by Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.

The collections occupy a large complex of six historic buildings along Palace Embankment, including the Winter Palace, a former residence of Russian emperors. Apart from them, the Menshikov Palace, Museum of Porcelain, Storage Facility at Staraya Derevnya and the eastern wing of the General Staff Building are also part of the museum.

● The Danish National Research Foundation’s Center for Textile Research (CTR)

In 2005-2016, the Danish National Research Foundation's Centre for Textile Research (CTR) focuses on textile history. This is being realised via substantial research programmes, as well as via the research training of young scholars, and a variety of activities connected with textile history involving universities, museums and design schools. The CTR organises seminars, conferences and courses in textile history on all academic levels. CTR is located at the University of Copenhagen/SAXO Institute and at the National Museum of Denmark. The designated leader is Professor Marie-Louise Nosch. The project managers are archaeologists Ulla Mannering, Eva Andersson and Karin Margarita Frei. The scientific mission of the CTR is to promote, expand and consolidate textile research in the academic world and: Establish a visible and explicit research profile with national and international references, setting new standards for future textile research. Explore and consolidate international textile knowledge. Achieve new results by conducting scientific programmes in new research fields, and by inspiring young scientists to include the area of textiles in their research. The overarching theme to be explored in the period between 2010 and 2016 is the connection between textile, environment and society in the 1st and 2nd millennium BC. This question will be explored via two research programs with sub projects and affiliated PhD projects. From 2010 CTR is hosted by the SAXO institute, University of Copenhagen and the National Museum of Denmark.
