Our vision and strategy for heritage science

Our vision is that the understanding and preservation of the UK’s extraordinarily rich and varied material cultural heritage will be enhanced by better use of science and technology, and that the humanities and the sciences will be developed and enhanced by this collaboration. Heritage science will be a robust, internationally recognised, well co-ordinated, vibrant and sustainable community that contributes to the big questions confronting humanity by understanding and addressing the present needs and future requirements of our cultural heritage.

In order to achieve this vision, the National Heritage Science Strategy (NHSS) has two strategic aims:

  • Demonstrate the public benefit of heritage science and increase public engagement and support for it
  • Improve partnership within the sector and with others by increasing collaboration to help practice make better use of research, knowledge and innovation and to enhance resources, funding and skills
