Due to the current situation regarding the coronavirus covid-19, and the difficulty to predict what the international situation will be in the next future, IPERION HS is re-organizing services.
Updates will be posted soon.
IPERION HS offers Transnational Access (TNA) to a wide range of high-level scientific instruments, methodologies, data and tools for advancing knowledge and innovation in the field of Heritage Science. Researchers in the academy, public institutions and industry can submit single or multi-analysis proposals, IPERION HS selects the best proposals and covers the costs of this activity. The TNA program offers a vast portfolio of services and activities distributed in 16 countries in Europe and the Associated Countries aiming to propose solutions to the needs of the Heritage Science community.
The combined activity promotes the development of advanced research in the examination and conservation of works of art, offering users the access to unique European resources for in situ and laboratory investigations on artwork materials through three TNA platforms: ARCHLAB, FIXLAB and MOLAB.
IPERION HS aims to deliver to the users (from experienced to primary users) not only experimental resources but also methodological approaches, compliant best practices, tools and technologies to permit them to carry out their projects in conditions otherwise impossible for them.
Access to physical and digital (offline) data collections in European museums or conservation institutes, such as objects, technical images, samples and reference materials, analytical data and conservation documentation.
Access to key fixed facilities for heritage science research, e.g. particle accelerators, neutron and laser sources and other non-transportable research facilities.
Access to a comprehensive selection of mobile analytical instrumentation for in-situ measurements (close-range and remote sensing) on objects, collections, buildings, and sites, allowing non-invasive investigations for complex multi-technique diagnostic projects.
The IPERION HS TNA ensures unparalleled support for excellent scholarly research projects and innovative enterprises. Competitive, peer-reviewed calls for TNA will be open to the academic, heritage sector and industrial research community.
