The Industrial Heritage Support Officer (IHSO) project began in September 2012. The post is funded by Historic England (HE) through their National Capacity Building Programme, and is managed by the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust (IGMT) in partnership with the Association of Independent Museums (AIM) and the Association for Industrial Archaeology (AIA). In addition to IGMT, AIM and AIA, the project steering group also includes Sir Neil Cossons, a representative of the European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH), and a project liaison from Historic England.
