The webinar takes place online and will introduce participants to the ARCHLAB platform. ARCHLAB (Scientific Archives) is the IPERION HS platform that provides access to organized scientific information in largely unpublished datasets from archives of prestigious European museums, galleries and research institutions. ARCHLAB enables access to the combined knowledge in 14 repositories in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Sweden and the UK. The data, in a physical or digital form, have been collected through years of activities devoted to research and conservation of European cultural and natural heritage. Besides access to scientific, analytical and technical data on cultural objects, crafts, monumental and archaeological sites of international importance and related samples, access is provided to collections such as reference samples, art materials and several types of archaeological collections.

Astrid Harth, Ghent University (BE) will talk about a success story on the Ghent Altarpiece.

María Martin Gil, IPCE (ES) will present “ARCHLAB: The Key to Heritage Science Archives”.
Supported by the EU IPERION HS project, ARCHLAB offers transnational access to heritage science information (technical documentation and sample archives) collected through many decades of research in 14 prestigious European Museums, Conservation Centers, and other institutions. ARCHLAB enables not only access to data and samples but also to experts with specialist knowledge about the archives, which significantly enhances the benefits to visiting researchers. The different access providers and some practical information about how ARCHLAB access takes place will be presented together with some examples.
