UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellowship

CIfA is delighted to congratulate Sadie Watson MCIfA on being awarded a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship. Sadie’s four-year Fellowship ‘Measuring, maximising and transforming public benefit from UK Government infrastructure investment in archaeology’ focuses on ensuring that public spending on archaeology for infrastructure projects leads to meaningful and relevant research and genuine community participation.

We are excited to be partnering with Sadie on this project which aligns closely with CIfA’s mission to promote high professional standards and strong ethics in archaeological practice, to maximise the benefits that archaeologists bring to society. Our Client Guide sets out the value of archaeology to society and the opportunities available to developers to realise that value. This project will enable the sector to better understand and articulate that value, ensuring that public benefit is at the heart of all the archaeological work CIfA professionals do.
