Heritage interpretation is an interdisciplinary field. While it involves a great deal of intuition and creativity in its practice, it is firmly rooted in an array of scientific disciplines. However, there are still a lot of unexplored territories and IE’s recently renewed Research Team has set out to identify research questions or topics that would be interesting and useful to explore.

Do you have a question related to heritage interpretation that has long bothered you, or you just recently bumped into? From small gaps to big issues, we would love to hear your opinion on which research questions and topics should be investigated!

Please participate in our short survey available here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ie_research. It will only take about five minutes to complete.

You might also want to check out some ideas previously channelled to the research team, available to view on the IE website: https://www.interpret-europe.net/top/market/universities/research/

The survey results will help IE connect practitioners and academics, facilitate research and encourage interested parties to work on questions that will benefit all. The survey will be open until 30 September 2019.

We are also collecting information on heritage interpretation courses at European universities to publish a comprehensive list on the IE website. Why not take a look https://www.interpret-europe.net/top/market/universities/university-courses/
and if you know of any others let us know using this form so that they can be added: https://forms.gle/hziYCrABDuYEPXuC8
