The National Heritage Science Forum has been set up to address the recommendations of the House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee Inquiry on Science and Heritage and to implement the National Heritage Science Strategy objectives.

The Forum provides a platform to support the policy, research and professional needs of institutions engaged in heritage science. The National Heritage Science Forum brings together many disciplines under the wide-ranging, interdisciplinary heritage science umbrella. Through working together, Forum members address the research and practice needs of institutions interested in or engaged with heritage science.
