The Institute of Archaeology has been awarded a grant from UCL's Knowledge Exchange and Innovation Fund to develop its relationship with the British Museum.

'UCL and the British Museum - Exploring and Enhancing Current Relationships' will run for the academic session 2017-18. There will be opportunities for staff from both institutions to showcase existing collaborations and run workshops to explore future joint projects.

The venture will also produce a portfolio of existing relationships between the two institutions for publication and consultation in thinking ahead to the possibilities for reciprocal training arrangements, joint research and funding applications.

Steering committees will be appointed at both institutions, to be chaired by project lead David Wengrow (UCL Institute of Archaeology), with Dorian Fuller and Corisande Fenwick as co-convenors, and from the British Museum, Carl Heron (Director of Scientific Research) and JD Hill (Research Manager).

Enquiries and expressions of interest are encouraged from all UCL departments, and should be directed in the first instance to David Wengrow (d.wengrow@ucl.ac.uk).
