Announcing Seaha – Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology
By Melissa M Terras, on 22 November 2013
Today, David Willets announced the new set of Centres for Doctoral Training in Engineering Sciences, funded by the Engineering and Physcial Sciences Research Council. We’re really pleased to say that UCL have secured funding for a Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology, which will fund 60 doctoral students in the next 8 years in using advanced technology in the area of cultural heritage. Seaha is EPSRC’s single largest investment to date in heritage science and engineering research.
Led by May Cassar from the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, UCLDH’s own Melissa Terras is one of the UCL Co-I’s, alongside Stuart Robson (Civil and Geomatic Engineering) and Matija Strlic (Bartlett), working in partnership with the University of Oxford (led by Heather Viles) and the University of Brighton (led by David Arnold), as well as a range of industry partners including the Tate, English Heritage, the Natural History Museum, Leica Geosystems and the National Physical Laboratory.
