The IPERION HS Doctoral Summer Schools are part of HS Academy providing a learning multidisciplinary interactive experience in the field of Heritage Science. Each year it is organized by different institutions on different focuses. Theoretical and technical lectures will be imparted by a wide range of international experts in the field of Heritage Science. All lectures are intended to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art as well as specific details of their topic.

In particular, the 2nd IPERION HS Doctoral Summer School (HS-DSS) was aimed at providing examples of excellence in heritage science in the environmental impact on built heritage ad its digitalization. The HS-DSS comprised four full days of lectures, during which participants became acquainted with the multidisciplinary skills of the IPERION HS consortium and knowledge accumulated by the partners. Issues such as materials and procedures for low environmental impacts, new methods for preservation of buildings and structures, digitalization and social and economical impacts were presented and discussed. Lectures and study tours were adapted to an interdisciplinary audience of learners by focusing more on problem solving than on the specific adopted scientific methods/techniques. All sessions and excursions were conducted in English.

The 2nd IPERION HS Doctoral Summer School participants included postgraduate, PhD students, post-docs and practitioners, as well as early-career researchers involved in art history, conservation, science, engineering and other fields of heritage science studies on built heritage. No registration fee was required from selected participants.

The final deadline for registration was June 30, 2023 and all selected candidates were informed of their acceptance before July 4, 2023.
