Historic materials and their diagnostics
The workshop will summarise state-of-the-art in the research of historic materials and their diagnostics in order to improve and up-to-date mutual information about scientific achievements and capacity of research facilities in the pre-Accession to the EU countries and will support transition of this information to the EU countries as well as to the countries of Community’s external policy interests. It will help to select themes for medium term courses and joint or concerted research in this field and will gather data on relevant national and international funding possibilities. The workshop is aimed to influence cultural heritage research orientation and training of teachers necessary for a sound economic and social local or regional development. All this will be used for relevant networking and twinning arrangements and links among pre-Accession to the EU countries, as well as, between them and the EU countries in the area of cultural heritage research.
