Societal challenges and heritage science research

The National Heritage Science Forum's member meeting in December 2020 focused on discussion of five proposed societal challenges for heritage science research.

The 2020 Members’ Meeting presented work by the NHSF Research working group on five societal challenges for heritage science research. This work was prompted by discussions at the 2019 Members’ Meeting on what is needed to create an environment that enhances interdisciplinary research. The conclusion of the 2019 meeting was that heritage science research must connect to the big issues that matter to society and the community should build partnerships with researchers from other disciplines to address these challenges.
