EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA)

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA) is an 8-year initiative (2014-2022) to establish an infrastructure to meet challenges set by the heritage sector, industry and government.

Working with heritage and industry partners, SEAHA students create, innovate or use sensors, instrumentation, imaging, digital and creative technologies to improve our understanding of heritage, to develop science and engineering capabilities and to benefit the economy.
