Towards a European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science

Heritage Science is a cross-cutting domain that embraces a wide range of research disciplines supporting the various aspects of tangible heritage conservation, interpretation and management. E-RIHS is the only pan-European research infrastructure for Heritage Science, led by CNR, which connects researchers in the natural sciences and humanities and fosters a trans-disciplinary culture of exchange and cooperation while offering access to a wide range of cutting-edge facilities, high-level scientific instruments, methodologies, data and tools for advancing knowledge and innovation in the study and preservation of heritage.

E-RIHS is currently in its preparatory phase (PP) working on assembling a worldwide network of affiliated partners and creating a global research infrastructure with the support of the intergovernmental organization ICCROM.

The international workshop “Towards a European research Infrastructure for Heritage Science“, that will be held in Florence March, 29 at the Chiostro del Maglio, aims at presenting the E-RIHS and its future perspectives.

The programme will be available shortly.
