Connecting With Collections Symposium
Friday, 27 September 2013 from 09:00 to 16:00 (BST)

6 Museums ● 6 Projects ● 6 Early Career Researchers
Between January 2013 and September 2013, six post-doctoral intern researchers completed individual AHRC and ACE-funded projects across the eight Cambridge University Museum institutions, and the University Botanic Gardens.
These six projects are part of an AHRC 'Connecting with Connections' initiative that aims to transform access to the exceptional collections and research resources of the University Museums.
The Connecting with Collections symposium will feature papers from each of the six early career researchers who will highlight the outcomes of the six projects.
