Heritage science is the application of science and technology to cultural heritage to improve understanding, management and engagement, and a consultation is open until 20 April 2018 on a new National Heritage Science Strategy: 2018-2023.
The National Heritage Science Forum writes:
In 2010 the National Heritage Science Strategy (NHSS) was produced in response to the recommendation of the 2006 House of Lords Science and Technology inquiry into Science and Heritage that the ‘heritage sector should come together in developing a broad-based national strategy for heritage science’. The 2010 Strategy sought to address the Committee’s findings that the sector was under-valued and fragmented.
This document sets out proposals for a new National Heritage Science Strategy for the UK, for 2018-2023 and asks for your comments on them through this survey consultation.
A briefing note on the background to the proposals in this consultation can be found on the National Heritage Science Forum website (where a pdf version of this consultation survey is also available).
This survey consultation takes approximately 12 minutes to complete and will be open until 20 April 2018.
- Why update the National Heritage Science Strategy?
- The vision for UK heritage science
- Four strategic themes for the new Strategy
- Using the new Strategy
- Next steps
Information submitted in response to this survey will be used by the National Heritage Science Forum to develop the National Heritage Science Strategy (NHSS). Responses are anonymous unless you ‘opt in’ at the end of the survey to receive further communication about the NHSS or to contribute examples and evidence that can be used in the final Strategy.
