NHSF Industry and Innovation workshop

As part of its 2017-18 priorities, NHSF is seeking stronger links with industry, to improve the impact of heritage science research in commercial markets and strengthen the scope for collaboration between research and industry.

Working towards this goal, NHSF invited heritage scientists and potential industry partners to take part in a workshop held at the Tate in November. Presentations by Nancy Bell (Northumbria University), Dr Lyn Wilson (Historic Environment Scotland) and Prof. May Cassar (UCL Institute of Sustainable Heritage, and NHSF trustee) introduced the National Heritage Science Strategy and provided an overview of the value of Heritage Science to sectors and markets beyond heritage. The event then provided an opportunity to discuss how the upcoming strategy refresh and other NHSF activities can help researchers, companies and heritage organisations collaborate and work together as part of a unified heritage industry.

A full report of the event is now available - see our Industry & Innovation page.
