Research Matchmaker: Collections at Risk - prototype launch and networking event

Thursday 14th December 2017

2.00pm-5.00pm

Southampton Solent University

Join us for a workshop to demonstrate and refine a digital prototype for a platform linking academics with exciting but under-researched museum collections.

The South East Museum Development Programme is a partner in an exciting project, led by Southampton Solent University and seed-funded by Arts Council England as part of the MUPI (Museum University Partnerships Initiative).

We’ll be presenting research findings about potential regional and national uptake for the Research Matchmaker platform as well as demonstrating an initial project prototype. Participants will have the chance to test the prototype and offer feedback to inform the future development of this site.

This is also a great opportunity to network with academics who are interested in making more use of museum collections in teaching and research.

Places are free of change but numbers are limited. There are 10 spaces available for academics at this event and 10 for curators. Please sign up below to secure your place!

Refreshments will be provided at the event.
