Cultural heritage research at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) has earned a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education: the highest national honour for a UK university.
The NTU’s work in cultural heritage brings together science, engineering, arts and humanities to develop innovative ways to reveal, record, understand and help restore culturally significant objects and protected monuments.
For the second time, NTU received this prestigious prize from The Queen and the Royal Anniversary Trust. Pioneering solutions in digitizing and analyzing heritage were recognized as boosters able to transform heritage practice, policy and innovation globally. The prize recognises outstanding work demonstrating excellence and innovation delivering real benefit to the wider world and it is the highest form of national recognition open to a UK academic or vocational institution.
The NTU research focuses on digital preservation, digital exhibitions, virtual reality modelling, imaging techniques for non-invasive analysis as key responses to reshape preservation programmes and risk mitigation related to remote and endangered heritage sites, places and marginalized groups.
