IPERION HSIntegrating Platforms for the European Research Infrastructure ON Heritage Science


ITAM carries out research on materials and structures including interdisciplinary projects in the field of Heritage. It operates since 2013 a new European Centre of Excellence as a specialised research infrastructure for Cultural Heritage research, which has been built under the ERDF support. The research portfolio involves projects with themes from technical and natural sciences through socio-economic research till art conservation. The ITAM team has been involved in more than 25 international projects supported by the EC (FP5-FP7), Council of Europe and other international programmes. The RI operates next to specific stationary laboratories (radiography, combined climatic wind tunnel, set of laboratories for physics, chemistry, biology) a group for complex investigations in historic environment. It consists in a mobile laboratory for diagnostics of historic materials and structures as well as several long-term monitoring networks (corrosion stations, measurement of weather and dynamic effects on historic buildings and monuments) with relevant database systems. ITAM is involved in development of the new distributed E-RIHS as a partner in the preparatory phase project. It is linked with other two research institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences with a framework cooperation agreement in research.

ITAM participates in the project with two third parties:

The Institute of Archaeology of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague (IAP)
The Institute of Archaeology of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Brno (IAB)
