Questionnaire

You are invited to participate in the following questionnaire devised as part of a research networking project that aims to provide an opportunity for practitioners from the heritage and museum sector together with the academic community to explore and devise innovative research initiatives. Full details of the project can be found at: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/theatre_s/cp/research/heritage_and_museums/
The aim is to identify key questions regarding heritage and museum ethics and values which will form the basis of future collaborative projects and potential funding bids. The answers to this questionnaire will be used to inform discussions at two workshops to be held at the University of Warwick in 2013/2014 and may also form the basis of research funding proposals and other research papers/reports.

All responses will remain anonymous and where answers to questions could potentially identify you, there is an opportunity to opt out of answering them.
