The current model for Research Frameworks is now nearly 20 years old and in this time the sector has seen significant changes in how it manages the historic environment, specifically within the planning process, and in relation to how research is generated and coordinated.
English Heritage has commissioned an evaluation of the role, impact and value of Research Frameworks for the historic environment sector in England (including, but not limited to, archaeology and the built environment).
To inform this research it is vital that English Heritage obtains views and feedback from current non-users, as well as users, of Research Frameworks an online questionnaire has been developed to gather user and non-user feedback.
It is anticipated that the questionnaire will take no more than 10 minutes to complete for current non-users and no more than 20 minutes to complete for current users of Research Frameworks. The survey will remain open until the end of February 2014.
The survey is being carried out independently by Pye Tait Consulting, under contract to English Heritage. Your views will be treated confidentially and reported anonymously by Pye Tait Consulting under the Data Protection Act 1988 and the Market Research Society (MRS) Code of Conduct.
