The AHRC is pleased to announce a call for researchers to attend a workshop on ‘Preserving Egypt's Cultural Heritage: Mitigating Threats for a Sustainable Future’. Organised in partnership with the Science and Technology Development Fund in Egypt (STDF), the event will bring together academic experts from both countries to address an issue of growing importance as Egypt seeks to preserve and position its rich cultural history within the context of growing international concerns about the threats modern society is posing to cultural heritage.

Expressions of interest to participate in the workshop are invited from UK-based researchers meeting the AHRC's standard eligibility requirements. Applicants should have a particular research interest in the topics noted above and be able to articulate this in their expression of interest.

The AHRC expects to support the attendance of around 15 UK-based researchers, with the STDF identifying a similar number of Egyptian academics.

The workshop will take place in Cairo, Egypt over two days from 12th to 14th October and will be funded through the Newton Fund – a 5 year programme that aims to strengthen research and innovation partnerships between the UK and emerging knowledge economies.
