The innovation festival will provide the opportunity to showcase and celebrate the innovative practices and approaches being undertaken across the historic environment sector.

 

 

CIfA is delighted to confirm that our third festival celebrating innovation in archaeology will be held on 10 - 14 October 2022 as a continuing annual event!

The historic environment is rich and diverse benefiting from a wide variety of specialisms. Collaborations spanning academic, community-led and developer-funded archaeological research provide fascinating insights to our collective past often with the help of new/adapted ‘innovative’ approaches.

The innovation festival will provide the opportunity to showcase and celebrate the innovative practices and approaches being undertaken across the historic environment sector, whilst tabling for wider discussion some of the identified barriers and challenges to implementing innovation in archaeological research. This week-long virtual festival will comprise a mix of short sessions each day including presentations, workshops, opportunities for open discussion, CPD and knowledge transfer. Click here to take a look at some of the session recordings from our January Innovation festival.
