HSAcademy “Palaeontology Research & IPERION HS” – November 9th, 2021.

Webinar #07: Palaeontology and IPERION HS

An overview of what IPERION HS can offer to the Palaeontology Community


IPERION HS and E-RIHS are organizing a series of webinars, a key source of state-of-the-art information on heritage science research, facilities, policy and impact. It contributes to developing a vibrant heritage science community and is intended for anyone involved in interdisciplinary heritage research.


How can #heritagescience research on Palaeontology benefit from IPERION HS services? How do we access IPERION HS techniques and archives for Palaeontology? What is needed to prepare a successful research proposal?


The webinar takes place online and will introduce participants to the field of Heritage Science facilities in IPERION HS, a European project devoted to building a distributed research infrastructure in the field of Heritage Science: E-RIHS (http://www.e-rihs.eu/).
The focus will be placed on what IPERION HS can offer to the Palaeontology community and how IPERION HS can answer to the heritage needs.

9th November 2021 at 3 pm (Rome time zone)

Heritage Science

45 minutes (30 minutes + 15 minutes Q&A)

Marina Martínez de Pinillos González – 
she is graduated in Humanities (Historical Heritage) and obtained the International PhD in Human Evolution at University of Burgos. She has extensive experience in scientific-technical environments. She has worked as a scientific advisor for the collection display at the Museum of Human Evolution in Burgos and as a collection technician for the Laboratory of Human Evolution at University of Burgos and for the Altamira National Museum and Research Centre, also participating in the preparation of The Times of Altamira project. She is currently working as a project manager of the ARIADNEplus (Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Dataset Networking in Europe) e IPERION HS (Integrating Platforms for the European Research Infrastructure ON Heritage Science), giving support to scientific-technical, logistical and dissemination tasks of these two European projects.

Belén Notario – She has a university degree in Physics, and a PhD in Physics, in the materials science branch (University of Valladolid, Spain). Since 2016, she is the technician in charge of the Microscopy and Microcomputed Tomography Lab at the National Research Center of Human Evolution in Burgos (Spain). Since then, she has been in charge of the direction of the laboratory and its proper functioning. In it, samples that cover different branches of science are analyzed and studied: from paleoanthropology and geology, to materials science, medicine and biology, among others.

Joaquín Arroyo-Cabrales– He is Head at the Archaeozoology Lab, National Institute of Anthropology and History.  His research focuses on Late Quaternary vertebrates and their contribution to understanding the paleoenvironments in which humans survived; in doing so, he has undertaken studies on taxonomy, biogeography, taphonomy, and paleoecology mostly on Mexican Pleistocene mammals.

4th May – IPERION Webinar #02 – FIXLAB: Key Fixed Research facilities Access.

The second webinar will take place online on May 4, 2021, at 3 pm CET. Ina Reiche and Rémi Petitcol will present FIXLAB: research on ivory, followed by hints and tips on FIXLAB access.

FIXLAB is the IPERION HS platform that provides access for the Heritage Science (HS) community to key fixed research facilities and to the associated scientific expertise.
Access is offered to researchers in Heritage Science to help address the major questions raised by the materiality of Heritage Science artefacts in terms of their genesis, manufacturing processes, alterations, conservation and preservation. The unique FIXLAB services offered to the HS community embrace advanced state‐of‐the‐art instrumentation; dedicated facilities with teams of experts in the field of micro‐analysis of HS artefacts; novel developments resulting from IPERION HS joint research activities to improve access progressively; development of both new sample‐positioning devices at a micro‐scale and software tools for the integration of imaging data.

Ina Reiche, research director at the French National Research Centre, will present the topic “Palaeolithic ivory artefacts investigated by particle physics”, while Rémi Petitcol, European Policy Officer at the French Center for Research and Restoration of Museums of France (C2RMF), will talk about “FIXLAB: a catalyst for Heritage Science”.
