Webinar – La conservación del patrimonio en piedra: teoría y praxis. Un diálogo entre España y México

El Instituto del Patrimonio Cultural de España (IPCE), miembro de la PTI-PAIS en colaboración con la Coordinación Nacional de Conservación del Patrimonio Cultural del Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia de México (CNCPC-INAH), el Centro Internacional de Estudios de Conservación y Restauración de Bienes Culturales (ICCROM-UNESCO) y la red European Research Infraestructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS) organizan el seminario online «La conservación del patrimonio en piedra: teoría y praxis. Un diálogo entre España y México» los días 5 y 6 de noviembre.

El objetivo de este seminario es una puesta en común de los criterios de intervención y los procesos metodológicos que rigen las intervenciones sobre el patrimonio cultural en piedra. El análisis de diferentes casos de estudio permitirá conocer el estado de la cuestión de la conservación de este tipo de patrimonio, en España y México, contrastando experiencias y estableciendo un debate sobre las distintas problemáticas de su conservación, tanto en entornos urbanos como arqueológicos.

Este seminario pretende tender puentes entre España e Iberoamérica y establecer un diálogo entre los profesionales de ambos continentes que permita desarrollar redes de colaboración en la conservación del patrimonio cultural.

Se ofertan 75 plazas. La inscripción se llevará a cabo mediante el formulario disponible en la web del IPCE. Para participar es necesario contar con la aplicación de videoconferencias Zoom.

Webinar: The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS), 24 jun 2020 04:00 PM (GMT+1 London)

The Icon Book & Paper Group Committee  are pleased to be able to bring you a series of live streamed talks while many people are required to stay at home during in these unprecedented times.

The next talk will be Matija Strlic giving their talk The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS)

Much could be gained from research that is openly shared, as well as from research that is collaboratively developed. The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS) will specifically promote the sharing of facilities where research is carried out – whether scientific laboratories, conservation workshops or art history research departments. Namely, investments into unique research facilities and expertise are much better justifiable if access to such facilities is open to external researchers. Many such facilities already exist and operate nationally and in order to reduce the risk of duplication, E-RIHS will be developed into a distributed infrastructure. This way, excellent facilities will pool some of their operational time to enable research to be carried out internationally and collaboratively, with lean central management. E-RIHS, including its UK node, E-RIHS.UK, is still actively developing and collaboration is actively promoted across the spectrum of heritage research.

About the speaker
Matija Strlic is Professor of Heritage Science at University College London and Professor of Analytical Chemistry at University of Ljubljana. His main research interests are the development of heritage science infrastructure, including instrumentation and methodology, as well as modelling of heritage materials, environments, values and decision making. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and of the International Institute for Conservation and was Chair of the ICON Heritage Science Committee from 2015-2018.

CSIC Interdisciplinary Platform Open Heritage, research and Society is member of Spanish node in E-RIHS.
