Successful follow on funding bid for AHRC Heritage Priority Area

Thursday 17 October 2019

We are very happy to announce that we have been successful in our bid for AHRC Follow-On-Funding from January to September 2020 for Opening New Pathways to Impact across Heritage Research, Policy and Practice. This ambitious project will build on the work of the AHRC Heritage Priority Area by aiming to:

  • transform and increase understanding amongst government, public and private heritage professionals, scholars, and university staff and students of domestic and international policies that indirectly or directly impact, influence, or relate to the heritage sector;
  • foster dialogues between policy makers, heritage professionals and UK heritage research communities;
  • increase awareness of the role the Arts and Humanities can play in policy and decision-making, and;
  • develop a network of dialogue and activity between policy-makers and heritage research/researchers in the UK.

There will be a series of activities organised to facilitate the above aims which include workshops, panels and conferences. Our ongoing work will also be facilitated by a no-cost extension to the original fellowship project which will allow us to continue to the end of 2020. We will be using the same Twitter handle, @AHRCHeritage, and will continue to update this website so please do keep in touch.
