AHRC opens its doors to more museums and galleries

The Arts and Humanities Research Council is urging more independent research organisations to apply for its funding schemes.

IRO status was introduced in 2007 as a way for museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage bodies that conduct research to apply for AHRC funding. Status as an IRO allows these organisations to compete for grants on an equal footing with universities.
