Advanced research training on the conservation of cultural heritage


The underpinning principle of European patrimony is that our cultural heritage is an invaluable legacy and integral to our future: in recognition of the fragile and finite nature of our heritage, European policy has sought to identify the best, most sustai nable means of conserving our cultural heritage. This single host Early Stage Training (EST) presented by the Councilfor Scientific Research (CSIC), the most important multidisciplinary research organisation in Spain, offers a multidisciplinary and structu red humanistic, scientific and technological training on CULTURAL HERITAGE. This EST represents the first multidisciplinary approach to the study of conservation of cultural assets and materials in the frame of Marie Curie Actions (MCA). Although we recogn ize a MCA cannot cover the whole Cultural Heritage spectrum, this EST on specific and inter connected areas, which likely corresponds with the most innovative, in terms of research and application of novel instrumentation, will serve as the basis to provid e state-of-the-art, early stage research training within an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary environment which includes archaeology, chemistry and material science, physics, geology and biology. Theintegral research training offered will put researc hers in contact with the leading and most active teams using sophisticatedand novel instrumentation for the diagnosis and study of deterioration and conservation problems in cultural heritage. This represent a unique opportunity for young people seeking fo r a research training and a structured formation in an area demanding new professionals. This EST is the result of a long-standing collaboration among the 9 host CSIC Institutes with overlapping and complementary expertise. This is an action of 48 months i n which 9 long-term (36 months) and 3 short-term (6 months) stages are offered.
