London Heritage Debate 26 October 2016
Heritage & Research: bridging the gap
6.00-9.30pm (Registration 6pm for 6.30 start). The event is free but registration is essential.
This eighth Heritage Alliance Heritage Debate will explore how heritage research influences public and private sector decision-making - or not. Millions of choices are made in the property industry and by modest private owners every day, while champions like The Heritage Alliance need to access relevant and timely evidence to support their advocacy. Universities are increasingly required to be more engaged with external audiences and to demonstrate impact but the outcomes of academic research, whether from history or psychology faculties, do not always reach the audiences that can put them to good use.
This debate will hear from experts with academic, property and political perspectives on how the transfer mechanisms work in practice and what might be done to strengthen them. The audience will be invited to contribute in the following Q&A session.
The speakers are:
Introduction: Dr Loyd Grossman CBE FSA, Chairman, The Heritage Alliance
Chair: Ros Kerslake OBE, Chief Executive, The Heritage Lottery Fund
Dr Oliver Cox, University of Oxford's Heritage Engagement Fellow
Bernard Donoghue, Chairman, The Tourism Alliance
Trevor Osborne, Chairman, The Trevor Osborne Property Group
Registration from 6.00pm
Debate + Q&A 6.30 – 8pm
Reception 8pm – 9.30pm
This event is free but registration is essential.
This event is generously sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance Group and held in partnership with The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities
