We share the outcomes of heritage science research and promote the sharing of knowledge, data, skills, equipment and facilities among our members.
The strategic framework theme of excellent research has four associated strategic outcomes, with related assumptions and preconditions
- Accessible funding streams
- Defined research priorities for the sector
- An environment that supports interdisciplinary research
- Physical and digital infrastructure so that research takes place across the UK
Societal challenges and heritage science research
The NHSF research working group has identified five societal grand challenges to inspire and encourage connections between heritage science research and five issues of importance to society.
A physical and digital infrastructure that supports heritage science research across the UK is a key outcome of the Strategic Framework for Heritage Science in the UK
Equipment sharing: NHSF Kit-Catalogue
The NHSF Kit-Catalogue is a searchable database of equipment and facilities used for heritage science research.
Filling the Gaps
We worked with the heritage science community to 'crowd-source' knowledge to 'fill the gaps' against priorities in the 2010 National Heritage Science Strategy.
The research strategies of major UK institutions active in the field of heritage science are shared to support the development of collaborative working.
Partnerships and networks
We reach out to strategic partners to build future infrastructure in heritage science. We develop professional and public partnerships to champion public access, enjoyment, understanding and support for heritage science.
