The AIA exists to promote the study, preservation and presentation of industrial archaeology and heritage. The research grant scheme underpins the study aim of the Association. It does that by:
- Encouraging individual researchers to study industrial archaeology subjects
- Encouraging the development of industrial archaeology skills within commercial units, the main repository of professional skills in the subject
- Supporting local industrial archaeology and industrial heritage societies in exploring and understanding their local areas
- Helping to develop the next generation of industrial archaeologists
The total fund available in any single year is £1,500 and multiple grants may be given up to this maximum in a single year. The AIA may consider part-funding a wider grant application or project as long as the AIA grant is a significant part of the larger application / project.
