This project which is generously funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) brings together three key actors in the heritage ecosystem:

When combined they provide three essential perspectives that will enable us to choose and drive forward four early career researcher (ECR) projects that will lead to enhanced collaborations that benefit the creative economy. The University of Cambridge is home to a nucleus of world leading collections under the banner of University of Cambridge Museums (UCM) and this project will aim to enable innovation across the group.

Outcomes of the project

This project has provided significant digital humanities research skills across the four Fellows; one of them directly attributes her success in obtaining a lectureship in digital humanities to the skills she developed during this project. Through showing what can be achieved by postdoctoral researchers working in digital humanities, the Museum has been able to make a significant strategic goal around developing our work in immersive experiences. This work has been given significant impetus through this project, which was the first of its kind for the Museum. For the creative economy partners, this project has enabled them to develop new services (ThinkSee3D) and has provided significant data on the uses of their product in different settings, as well as potential routes to new business.
