Advisory board

The Arts and Humanities Research Council’s (AHRC) advisory board provides advice to AHRC and its Council on strategies for research, innovation, training, knowledge transfer, impact, evaluation, and international engagement.

This reflects AHRC’s vision and remit as well as the most important national, European and global needs and challenges facing arts and humanities research.

The advisory board is chaired by a member of the AHRC Council, and its membership is made up of academics and representatives from non-Higher Education Institution research communities.
