Bookings now live - see below! #LetsGetInnovative
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. However, implementing innovation is not always straightforward as highlighted in a recent project undertaken by CIfA in collaboration with ALGAO (funded by Historic England). This project highlighted the issues and potential barriers being faced by archaeologists trying to embrace innovation, especially in the commercial sector, and which will form discussion themes throughout the festival.
This week-long virtual festival is free and will comprise a mix of short sessions each day including presentations, workshops, opportunities for open discussion, CPD and knowledge transfer.
To view the full Innovation Festival programme, please see our timetable and session information below. Times may be subject to change while we finalise our programme.
Please note, that you must register for each session that you wish to attend – your registration is only for that session and not the entirety of the festival. Places for each session are also strictly limited, so do book early so that you don't miss out!
