The main aim with the forum is to be a platform and arena for initiating, developing and establishing transdisciplinary research about sustainable heritage and conservation. By offering substantial and stimulating activities such as lectures, seminars, workshops and conferences, the research forum becomes a venue for discussions and debates - a sort of greenhouse where new research collaborations can take root and grow.
To strengthen the research environment at Campus Gotland, the forum also provides funding for employees to invite guest researchers to spend time at Campus Gotland, and for inviting colleagues to write research applications together etc.
"Conservation is the systematic management of change in order to reduce the rate of decay"
Sir Bernard M Feilden
A greenhouse where new and pioneering research is developed
Through its activities, the forum should be a platform where new ideas and research collaborations are developed. The business sector, the public sector and civil society, as well as researchers from different disciplines are given the opportunity to meet and develop specific research issues based on thematic collaborations.
A hub at Campus Gotland
The forum will generate discussion and research on cultural heritage/conservation and sustainable development extending beyond disciplines and faculty boundaries. It will contribute to strengthening international collaborations. Research environment and education at Campus Gotland can thus be developed and enriched.
Contributing to the research results being translated into knowledge and practice outside the university
The forum will support collaborative research based on identified needs in the society, national as well as international.
