The second webinar will take place online on May 4, 2021, at 3 pm CET. Ina Reiche and Rémi Petitcol will present FIXLAB: research on ivory, followed by hints and tips on FIXLAB access.
FIXLAB is the IPERION HS platform that provides access for the Heritage Science (HS) community to key fixed research facilities and to the associated scientific expertise.
Access is offered to researchers in Heritage Science to help address the major questions raised by the materiality of Heritage Science artefacts in terms of their genesis, manufacturing processes, alterations, conservation and preservation. The unique FIXLAB services offered to the HS community embrace advanced state‐of‐the‐art instrumentation; dedicated facilities with teams of experts in the field of micro‐analysis of HS artefacts; novel developments resulting from IPERION HS joint research activities to improve access progressively; development of both new sample‐positioning devices at a micro‐scale and software tools for the integration of imaging data.
Ina Reiche, research director at the French National Research Centre, will present the topic “Palaeolithic ivory artefacts investigated by particle physics”, while Rémi Petitcol, European Policy Officer at the French Center for Research and Restoration of Museums of France (C2RMF), will talk about “FIXLAB: a catalyst for Heritage Science”.
