Research and Academic Cooperation
Our Approach to Research and Academic Cooperation
CIE tries to encourage the development of academic and theoretical frameworks in order to support the practical work of our heritage activities. To fully achieve sustainability we must aim to, as well as improve upon academic and professional networks, seek to improve clarity and transparancy through breaking down barriers in heritage cooperation between academics, practitioners and communities. CIE wishes to stimulate research and understanding, encourage communication and knowledge exchange between individuals, practitioners, communities, institutions and countries. In order to achieve this aim, CIE tries to provide platforms and environments in which to bring people together in an arena which will inspire and foster cooperative and co-creative thinking. CIE also targets not only seasoned professionals but also works to facilitate exchange amongst young students, as well as practitioners and specialists from a variety of different professional environments.
As well as researching different aspects of history and heritage of the Netherlands and overseas, CIE also seeks to conduct research into the heritage profession itself. This research we believe advances the profession and improves our own knowledge and understanding, thereby influencing the sustainability of our projects in the future. CIE organises regular events, seminars and expert meetings that focus upon evaluating and researching our own activities, as well as attitudes to heritage within the Netherlands, Europe, and further afield. We like to think about and evaluate why it is we are doing what we are doing. These reflections and critiques fuel and drive our own research and approaches to our work. This is also a way of conducting the empowerment of ourselves as an organisation.
