CHARISMA Joint Research activities are based on three pillars with the common goal to improve the performance of the project’s infrastructures, developing innovative instrumentations and methodologies tailored to the user’s needs.
To these aims, three defined projects are planned:
- portal exploiting cultural heritage knowledge to enhance the use of archives of the European cultural heritage institutions and to unlock their immensely valuable collections.
- new portable instrumentation and methodologies for in-situ diagnostics and conservation are developed , setting-up new instrumentation and methodologies for the study of artwork materials, at the surface and in depth as well as developing new advanced laser cleaning techniques, exploiting high security methods that guarantee the artwork, being based on local control of the intervention.
- innovative methods & instrumentation for laboratory research regarding organic material investigations on the surface of an object or on microsamples.
