RLUK is delighted to have signed a collaboration agreement with The National Archives for the period 2024-2027. The agreement continues our joint work under our previous Memorandum of Understanding, and underlines our shared commitment to cross-sector collaboration, driving innovation and workforce development in our sectors, and exploring new ways to engage audiences with our collections and services. Since 2014, our organisations have worked together on strategic areas of common interest and values.

These activities include the DCDC Conference series, which RLUK co-organised with The National Archives from 2013 to 2022, and the TNA-RLUK Professional Fellowship Scheme, which enables staff from both organisations to share experience and insight and to address collective challenges facing research and cultural organisations.

David Prosser, Executive Director of RLUK, said: ‘We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with The National Archives and this agreement will help us to further identify shared challenges and opportunities that we can effectively address through working together.’
