Actions and Detail Panel
The 2017 FAME FORUM
Fri, June 23, 2017, 9:30 AM – 3:45 PM BST
Innovation is a critical issue for the archaeology sector. Faced with the demands of clients for more effective working, with policymakers for a more streamlined approach, and with the prospects of a significant capacity gap resulting from demand from major infrastructure projects, developing and investing in new techniques and technologies is more important than ever. How do we do things more quickly and economically, while enhancing quality? How do we find the resources to support research and development?
Our aim will be to bring together speakers from across the heritage sector, but also more widely from the construction and development industry to discuss how innovation can be supported, encouraged and embedded through the supply chain. We will hear from speakers whose role it is to make innovation work at the sector level, on large complex construction projects, but also where the focus is very much on archaeology. A range of speakers will also look at the latest process, technological and science-based developments in the heritage sector including on-site digital recording, BIM, remote sensing and use of VR.
The aim of the day is to update us all on current thinking around innovation and to generate ideas as to what individual firms, and the sector needs to do to support innovation.
