Report on Research Frameworks is out now

The report to evaluate the impact and role of Research Frameworks on the historic environment sector and analyse the sectoral user needs is out now and available to download

The project was commissioned by English Heritage as part of the delivery of the English Heritage Strategy for developing Research Resources in support of the National Heritage Protection Plan (NHPP).

The comprehensive survey involved four stages: sectoral stakeholder scoping interviews, an online questionnaire, follow up telephone interviews and a focus group workshop. There was a high level of engagement with the sector with 436 responses to the online survey – of which the highest percentage (37.8%) came from the commercial sector.

The report includes a number of conclusions and recommendations that will inform English Heritage's future planning for developing Research Frameworks.
