We are glad to be in partnership with the IFR and to share interest in changing academic cultures and practices for new generations. The Bornholms Museum and Bornholm Archaeological Research Center foster vibrant networks of graduate and undergraduate students from our partner institutions such as the IFR. In recent years, IFR students have attended one of our projects, and their dynamic participation, commitment, and critical feedback have increased the importance of students in the structure of our projects and research.

I could not be more pleased with my experience working with the IFR. I can say that the season was a success, due in part to working with the Institute for Field Research and having access to the professional resources the organization has to offer. Not only did I have direct access to amazing students, the staff and board of directors were clearly committed to the success of my field school.

We have worked with the IFR for several years now, on a range of programs relating to archaeology, public archaeology, bioarchaeology, and landscape archaeology – more recently having also diverged into environmental science programs. It is a relationship we value, that allows our schools to reach a much wider, international audience, and one we hope can continue to flourish over the coming years.
