CinBA. Assessing the Impact of A HERA Research Project

Project overview

The HERA-funded project Creativity and Craft Production in Middle and Late Bronze Age Europe (CinBA) ( ran from 2010-2013. It was one of 9 international projects supported within the HERA1 ‘Creativity’ theme.

Almost two years from the official project end, we assesses the post-project impact of CinBA. This study revisits academic and non-academic partners and collaborators to report on impact in terms of the project’s effectiveness, international scope, persistence and leverage. Knowledge exchange was embedded in CinBA research from the start. A report reflecting on the ‘CinBA experience’ provides robust evidence for the value of humanities research and offers insights into how the best elements of the CinBA model of knowledge exchange (KE) may be developed and replicated elsewhere.
