DAM participates for a long time already in research activities of Bibracte EPCC (Centre archéologique européen, France). Archaeological team of DAM has been working here since 2006 and geophysical team of RI since 2011. Both teams are integral parts of the long-term research plan at the Bibracte site and in its surroundings.

Since 2013, DAM collaborates with the Department of Prehistory and Historical Archaeology, University of Vienna, MAMUZ Museum Asparn /Zaya and Otto Berger Regional Museum Bernhardsthal in a research focused on archaeological heritage of the region of Moravian-Lower Austrian border area. The project comprises large-scale geophysical survey and archaeological test trenching.

DAM is a long-term partner of the Laboratory for Experimental Archaeology under the Romano-Germanic Central Museum in Mainz in research and experimental verification of historical technologies, mainly technologies of pottery production. The laboratory-verified results increase the accuracy of interpretation of the archaeological material analysed, in which pottery is the most numerous component. RI DAM offers high-quality archaeometric analyses of the technology of pottery and other materials based on experiments, and provides the results to a wider community of experts.

DAM participates as a research partner in projects of INSTAP research grant on Santorini (since 2016; partners: Graduate School “Human Development in Landscapes” Kiel; University of Cambridge, McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research) and in Priniatikos Pyrgos on Crete (since 2007; partner: Irish Institute of Hellenic Studies).

DAM is involved in international professional organisations ICOM (International Council of Museums, http://icom.museum) and Interpret Europe (www.interpret-europe.net) and world net UNESCO Chair on Museology and World Heritage – 80.

  • University of Kiel, which is concerned on a long-term basis with freshwater (so-called limnic) archaeology (project AMLA). Within this institution we already established scientific cooperation with Institute of Geosciences (Prof. W. Rabbel).
  • Centre Archéologique européen Bibracte EPCC (Dr. V. Guichard), where we already for 5 years organise and carry out archaeological and geophysical research in the La Tène Period oppidum of Bibracte.

We also carried out many geophysical surveys for public as well as non-profit subjects.

As a subcontractor of the Road and Motorway Directorate, together with Institute of Archaeology, Czech Academy of Sciences in Brno, we carried out prediction of archaeological sites on the route of motorway D52 (Pohořelice – Mikulov, 2009) and on the Břeclav bypass road (2013).

In processing of archaeological field documentation with the help of GIS tools we collaborate with:

  • Archaeological Centre Olomouc
  • Institute of Archaeological Heritage Brno
  • Institute of Archaeology, Czech Academy of Sciences in Brno
