The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum for scientists, conservators, owners of cultural heritage properties and other experts who are involved in cultural heritage preservation.
The focus will be on historic structures and their conservation and preservation. The workshop will bring together European activities and initiatives that capture the current state‐of‐the‐art in research and development. It will present the latest results from the European & national projects 3ENCULT, Climate for Culture, EFFESUSCETIEBMEMORINANOMATCH, MESSIB, CHIC, SMooHS, Spara och Bevara and others.
