HistBEKE is a flagship University of Liverpool project to develop a national knowledge exchange framework and research agenda for the built historic environment in England.

This collaborative, multi-disciplinary project is based within the School of Histories, Languages and Cultures, and is being funded by Historic England.

Key project aims are to:

  • Enhance decision-making processes through wider access to current knowledge
  • Set an agenda for further knowledge enhancement to enable more effective management and decision-making
  • Establish a sustainable and collaborative network to maintain the framework into the future

We’re keen to hear your thoughts and suggestions for the project, so please view the ‘Get Involved’ section to find out how you can help us.

Are you a national heritage organisation who might want to join the HistBEKE network and have an input into it’s future?

Are you are a researcher who could use the research agenda for funding applications or project development?

Or maybe you’re a funding body looking for a way to prioritise built heritage project grants?

Please let us know:

  • How you might make use of HistBEKE
  • Whether or not your own research agenda aligns with HistBEKE
  • Knowledge gaps and research themes that we might have missed
  • Knowledge gaps and themes that you might be able to fill
  • Guidance / publications / projects that might be added to the knowledge exchange
  • Areas for future collaboration
  • Your thoughts on the future of HistBEKE
