The Discovery Programme: Centre for Archaeology and Innovation Ireland is an all-island centre for archaeology and heritage science.
The IAI is the representative all-island organisation for professional archaeologists working in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The aim of the IAI, through the representation of our members, is to advance and strengthen the profession of archaeology in Ireland. Our vision is that we will have a vibrant and sustainable archaeological profession that actively contributes to the protection of our archaeological resource, which in turn contributes to the social and economic wellbeing of the entire community. The IAI design and develop continuing professional development training courses for professionals in the heritage sector and the wider public.
What work the Heritage Council is funding this year:
The funding received from the Heritage Council assists the Institute in the development of its Continuing Professional Development Training programme that is aimed at all professionals in the heritage sector on the island of Ireland. The training takes the form of a range of workshops, introductory courses and professional best practice seminars.
