September’s #HeritageChat discussed What do Universities need from the sector (and vice versa)?

This #HeritageChat was run in collaboration with Lizzie Glithero-West (the Heritage Alliance, HEF member and hosting organisation) and Oliver Cox (University of Oxford).

Participants shared ideas, thoughts and experiences on practical barriers and positive examples for collaboration; ways to diversify audiences and to enhance the sustainability of organisations through collaboration; policy challenges that collaboration could contribute to solve. In the last three questions, #HeritageChat addressed heritage organisations, students and academic research and asked them to share future outcomes for collaboration, practical needs and opportunities for support.
