CMNH supports the research of individual scholars and practitioners whilst enabling and encouraging participation in collaborative research activity. Our key Research Areas, often developed over a number of years, bring together groupings of cognate researchers, encourage synergy between their work, and link our core activities: the organisation and hosting of events, production of publications and other research outcomes, building of scholarly and social partnerships, recruitment and nurturing of postgraduate students, and development of research funding applications.
