Demonstrable social and economic impact

Heritage science generates social and economic value, for example as evidenced through research that helps us to understand our place in the world, through techniques that preserve heritage assets, or through direct employment. The challenge focused on in this strategic framework is to understand and evidence the contribution that heritage science makes to society and the economy, and demonstrate the opportunities for increasing social and economic impact.

The theme 'demonstrating the social and economic impact of heritage science' has five associated strategic outcomes

  • Improved innovation and commercial application of research
  • Strategic relationships between business and research organisations
  • Better discoverability of research and data to enable re-purposing
  • Evidence of social and economic impact
  • Increased effectiveness of wellbeing interventions
