CHARISMA manages 3 focused networking activities, particularly effective in meeting the needs of young scientists and researchers, as well as conservator-restorers, art historians and archaeologists at a European and world-wide level, increasing the availability and the utilization of CHARISMA findings, best practices and results, through interaction with the target users.
Topics considered include, but are not limited to, the following critical outreach ways:
- establishing common strategies in analysis and assessment of best practices in conservation, finding the most appropriate approach for each category of objects, monuments, historical buildings and sites (Toward European common standards);
- training actions, skills development-oriented and high level interdisciplinary encounters are pursued toward conservator-restorers, conservation-scientists and museum curators, on appropriate application of the most advanced and novel analytical techniques and conservation methodologies; sharing of knowledge is also pursued through scientific and technical meetings, diffusing the results obtained within the European scientific community and verifying the impact of CHARISMA work and grades (Workshops, training and expert meetings to scientific excellence);
- dissemination and expanded communication activities are addressed to foster a culture of cooperation between CHARISMA participants and thecultural heritage scientific community benefiting from the CHARISMA activities, following a Dissemination Plan identifying specific areas in which the project results can have a genuine influence and the different target groups recipients, i.e. policy makers, stakeholders, researchers and academics, SMEs producers in the heritage community, curators and restores (Coordination of dissemination and communication effort).
An external evaluation and feedbacks will be accomplished through the Extra-Mural Advisory Committee, who will monitor the success, attainments and impact of the project actions.
