Here is a post from our Policy and International Relations Officer, Francoise McClafferty:

“National Museums Liverpool and the University of Liverpool have been collaborating on a vast range of topics for many years, including, joint research, teaching provision for students, placements and projects, access to our diverse collections, loans and joint public events.

“We are delighted to announce that we have now taken our relationship a step further and forged a formal commitment that articulates our shared ambitions in the city, nationally and internationally. A Memorandum of Understanding between both institutions has been signed and a plan of action for joint activity is underway.

“The University of Liverpool’s educational offer and world-leading research are recognised globally as distinctively collaborative; while it’s relationships with the culture and creative sector are of huge value to building capacity and advancing knowledge.
