The Forum’s members are working together to demonstrate the positive social and economic impact of heritage science.
The strategic framework 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
