#HeritageChat: Heritage and Evaluation

The first #HeritageChat of the new year was held on the 18 January, on the theme of evaluation. It explored heritage sector uses of existing evaluation data, shared guidance, resources and ideas for greater buy-in, and asked whether there is scope for a shared evidence base. The topic of evaluation is a common thread in all of Heritage 2020’s work, but is especially relevant to the activities of the ‘Public Engagement‘ and the the ‘Constructive Conservation and Sustainable Management‘ working groups. The session was run jointly by @HeritageChat and by ERS Research & Consultancy @ERS_Limited.
