South Western Federation of Museums and Art Galleries


University of Exeter

The South West Fed and the University of Exeter have had a joint Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) since December 2018. This builds on several years of collaboration in the areas of conferences and promoting industry placements, internships and the International Heritage Management and Consultancy MA.

The MoU acknowledges the intention for the South West Fed and University of Exeter to work together to explore the possibility of developing and furthering the following common objectives:

  • Entering into discussions to improve awareness of each other’s expertise and needs, and to assist in building networks to facilitate further mutual cooperation
  • Recognising that there may be mutual interest and benefit in undertaking joint research and pilot projects
  • Maximising wider collaboration and interaction with a broader network of heritage organisations in the South West and the wider UK

We will be updating members regularly on activities related to the MoU via our eBulletin (sign up here), News pages and Twitter/Facebook
