E-RIHS International Meeting - From cross disciplinary research to heritage science

Thursday, October 18, 2018

The National Research Council of Italy (CNR) and the Opificio delle Pietre Dure (OPD) organised, within the E-RIHS PP and IPERION CH projects, the international workshop “From cross-disciplinary research to heritage science”. The workshop took place in Sala Giordano, Palazzo Medici Riccardi in October 18, 2018. The event celebrated the twenty-year collaboration between the CNR, the largest public research body in Italy, and the OPD, the Institute of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities, through the joint laboratory whose operational and research activity is carried out in the field of restoration of works of art. The first part of the workshop focussed on this cutting-edge multidisciplinary collaboration, a milestone in the Heritage Science, as well as on similar European experiences. The afternoon session discussed to an international level the vision and challenges of the Heritage Science. A final Round Table was dedicated to discuss, from different point of views, a common heritage science mission.
