CHARISMA

Scientific research significantly contributes to the conservation of our heritage. Several methods are used to explore the bulk, microscopic and surface properties of artefacts, including both traditional and advanced analytical techniques. The artworks studied include paintings, sculptures, metal works, ceramics, manuscripts, printed books, archaeological items, and others.
In a program that covers joint research, transnational access and networking, the planned challenging activities require a combined effort and commitment of a high-level partnership of twenty-one organizations to provide access to advanced facilities, with development of research and applications on artwork materials finalised to the conservation of cultural heritage and favoring the opening of larger perspective to the heritage conservation activities in Europe.
The CHARISMA transnational access (TA) programs offer European scientists the possibility to carry out their experiments utilizing 3 different and complementary groups of facilities (ARCHLAB, MOLAB and FIXLAB) through a service embedded in a multidisciplinary environment involving material science and artwork conservation/restoration.

The access activities are supported by 3 outreach programs as networking (NA) cooperation activities, with the intent to achieve a permanent interoperability among the European institutions of the CHARISMA consortium and those external to it. The activity fosters the culture of international cooperation, providing harmonisation of methodologies, sharing knowledge and best practices on conservation projects, adopting progressive standard compatibility, and providing education, training, users' awareness events, technology transfer and dissemination of project results.

3 Joint Research activities (JRA), intend to exploit advanced technologies & techniques as well as most promising applications and integrated solutions, to complement the project scheme providing innovative instrumentations and methodologies tailored to the user's needs.
