AHRC’s IROs, university collections and the wider GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) sector are major centres of inter and multidisciplinary research, with vast holdings ranging from herbaria and fossils to portrait miniatures and historic sites and monuments. They are the arts and humanities’ equivalent to UKRI’s large multidisciplinary research and innovation infrastructures located at Harwell and elsewhere in the UK.

We invite colleagues in IROs, university collections, and the wider GLAM sector to attend a virtual information and Q&A session on Monday, 10 August 2020, 2pm-4pm. This will begin with a short presentation followed by Q&A on potential future funding opportunities focusing on renewal, upgrade and maintenance of existing facilities and equipment in conservation, heritage science, digital capture and specialist study spaces.

Registration for the event closes on Friday, 7 August 2020.
