Abstract

Titre en français: 4ème conférence de la commission européenne. La recherche pour la protection, la conservation et la mise en valeur du patrimoine culturel : opportunités pour les entreprises européennes, Strasbourg (FR), 22-24 novembre 2000

The conference was initiated under the French Presidency by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication in collaboration with the European Commission's Directorate-General for Research.

This volume contains the proceedings of the conference, including 26 individual papers and a round table discussion. It is the first time within this series of conferences that the authors' contributions have been gathered into a single publication. The papers are grouped under six main topics, corresponding to the different sessions that were held during the course of the conference:

- How do we assess pollutant damage and achieve a balance between costs and benefits?
- What is the scope for using optical technologies for cultural heritage conservation?
- How do we reconcile the sustainable development of cities with the preservation of cultural heritage?
- Conservation materials: treatment compatibility, re-treatment or reversibility?
- Microclimates within museums, churches, libraries and archives: for better or for worse?
- How do we balance tourism with sustainable exploitation and management of cultural heritage?

The individual papers are mostly in English, but the opening and closing speeches, the round table, the session reports and abstracts of all the papers are in English and in French.
