Cultural Heritage Technologies research line aims to research and promote new technologies and to extend existing techniques for preservation and analysis of the  invaluable cultural heritage CH assets managed by Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAM) across different fields of art.

Preservation will act at several  levels, involving  different research fields with the aim to immortalise (CH) artefacts through high-accuracy 3D digitisation techniques of GLAM assets in conjunction with newly developed coatings shielding the tangible assets from natural and human-generated decay. This strategic  synergy will provide  custom-based preservation solutions related to the structure (chemical composition and  shape) of the artefact by sensing its current deterioration state as analysed by affordable and portable devices. On a different level, the center will research technology  to preserve the more  intangible, but not less important, value of GLAM assets.
