The ‘Afterlife of Heritage Research’ Skills Training Project (2012-13; funded by the AHRC) aims to support research students and early career researchers (ECRs) in developing skills, capacity and profiles for professional careers in the heritage sector. The project’s tailored training provision (including training guides, collaborative projects with cultural institutions, work placements and industrial mentoring) will assist students and ECRs in identifying, understanding and ‘translating’ the benefits of their heritage research in ‘real-life’ public, professional and business contexts.

Project Partners:
Institute for Cultural Practices at The University of Manchester (Lead Partner)
