AHRC has launched a call for expressions of interest in RICHeS – the Research Infrastructure for Conservation and Heritage Science.
If your organisation has equipment, expertise or scientific reference collections that could form part of a funded UK-wide research infrastructure please complete the form https://bit.ly/RICHeS-EOI
Expressions of interest are encouraged from both UKRI-eligible organisations (e.g. Higher Education Institutions and Independent Research Organisations) and those that are not normally eligible, particularly smaller heritage organisations, libraries, archives and museums. AHRC is keen to explore the landscape for partnership working in the heritage sector and wants to understand, through responses to this EOI, where there is potential to build partnerships that can increase access to the equipment, expertise and reference collections that enable research into the long-term management and preservation of heritage assets and collections.
If your organisation holds equipment, expertise or scientific reference collections (analogue or digital) that could form part of a national infrastructure please respond before 1 August.
