Date: 12-14 October 2015
Location: Cairo, Egypt
Deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest: 4pm (BST) 09/09/2015
The AHRC-sponsored workshop aims to bring together academic experts from the UK and Egypt to address an issue of growing importance as Egypt seeks to preserve and position its rich cultural history within the context of growing international concerns about the threats modern society is posing to cultural heritage. Funding covers transports, accommodation, visa charges and subsistence costs incurred during the event.

The workshop will provide the basis for a follow-up call for development funding awards that will facilitate the building of UK-Egypt research networks and partnerships exploring and developing key issues arising from the workshop.
