The E-RIHS.it project (formerly IPERION CH.it) aims to create a distributed research infrastructure (RI) for Heritage Science in Italy, and represents the national initiative of the European proposal E-RIHS ( www.e-rihs.eu ).
Recognized as a potential RI of pan-European interest, ERIHS.it is was formally established in 2018 as a Joint Research Unit.
Since 2016 it has received political support and financial commitments from the Ministry of the University and Research (MIUR).
The project strengthens the Italian position in Europe in the field of Heritage Science and improves its capabilities in the technological and scientific sectors related to Cultural Heritage, integrating state-of-the-art facilities and offering access to a wide range of tools of high scientific level, as well as methodologies, data and tools to promote knowledge and innovation in the conservation of Cultural Heritage. E-RIHS.it connects researchers from different organizations and contributes to their mobility, contributing to disseminating and enhancing national research and technological development. Work is currently underway for the planning and implementation of national and European research projects.

The main activities of the project are:

  • national access
  • networking activity
  • training and education
  • communication, dissemination and exploitation of results
  • promotion of innovation
