Cuestionario Iperion HS sobre intereses y necesidades de investigación en Ciencia del Patrimonio.

Desde el proyecto europeo Iperion HS en el que participamos, dentro del grupo de trabajo en Innovación y explotación, se ha preparado esta encuenta que pretende sondear los intereses y necesidades de investigación en el campo de la Ciencia del Patrimonio.

El cuestionario está dirigido a profesionales en el amplio ámbito del patrimonio cultural con implicación en la investigación, o que desean participar en la investigación sobre el patrimonio. Incluyen una amplia gama de expertos: conservadores, restauradores, arqueólogos, arquitectos, historiadores del arte, etnólogos, paleoantropólogos, conservadores, químicos, biólogos, geólogos, ingenieros…

Con este cuestionario también se quiere evaluar el uso y acceso actual y pasado a infraestructuras o centros de investigación, como el acceso transnacional de Iperion.

La encuesta se puede encontrar aquí y puede tomar hasta 20 minutos de tiempo completarla:

La encuesta estará abierta hasta el 30 de septiembre. 20 de octubre

Os agradecemos vuestra participación si os encontráis entre los perfiles de la encuesta.

Si no conocéis IPERION HS ni la Infraestructura Europea para la Investigación en Ciencia del Patrimonio (E-RIHS), aquí tenéis un video que explica que es, que ofrece y como formar parte.

Espectroscopía de ruptura inducida por láser (LIBS) en el Instituto del Patrimonio Cultural de España (IPCE)

Investigadores del Instituto de Química Física Rocasolano del CSIC (IQFR – CSIC) y del Instituto del Patrimonio Cultural de España (IPCE) están colaborando en el análisis de una selección de monedas provenientes del pecio de Nuestra Señora de Las Mercedes y de piezas metálicas de El Tesoro de la Guerra Civil. El estudio está enmarcado en los proyectos SCOCHLAS Estudio y conservación del patrimonio cultural con láseres/Study and Conservation of Cultural Heritage with Lasers. (PID2019-104124RB-100) e IPERION HS (Integrating Platforms for the European Research Infrastructure ON Heritage Science). H2020-INFRAIA-2019-1, y refleja también las colaboraciones establecidas dentro de la PTI-PAIS.

Para su desarrollo, los miembros del Laboratorio Láser de Ciencia del Patrimonio del IQFR – CSIC han trasladado sus equipos a las instalaciones del IPCE para habilitar un laboratorio móvil. El objetivo del trabajo es la asignación de los elementos traza presentes en los metales de las monedas con el fin de identificar diferencias composicionales entre las distintas procedencias. Para ello, se ha utilizado la espectroscopía de ruptura inducida por láser (LIBS), una técnica que permite el reconocimiento de los elementos traza a partir de su composición elemental. Asimismo, los datos extraídos mediante LIBS de elementos mayoritarios y minoritarios serán comparados con datos existentes en el IPCE de análisis anteriores realizados en trabajos de restauración-conservación de los bienes.


[1st June, 3 p.m.] Remember the IPERION HS webinar on Mobile Laboratory [MOLAB]

Remeber the IPERION HS webinar on MOLAB: https://pti-pais.csic.es/1st-june-iperion-webinar-03-molab-mobile-laboratory-islamic-manuscripts/

 

The webinar takes place online and will introduce participants to the MOLAB platform.

Registration: http://www.iperionhs.eu/webinar-3-registration/

The MOLAB (MObile LABoratory) is the IPERION HS platform that provides access for the Heritage Science (HS) community to key mobile laboratories and to the associated scientific expertise. It is composed of a set of mobile equipment and related competencies, for in-situ non-destructive measurements of artworks, collections, monuments, and sites made available for access through IPERION-HS. The value of MOLAB is twofold: first, the possibility of applying a multi-technique integrated approach that overcomes the intrinsic limitation of individual methods; second, the ability to analyse heritage objects without the need to move them. MOLAB started in 2004 with only two providers and now features 17 facilities across 10 countries offering access to 48 different instruments. The new MOLAB platform within IPERIONHS includes mobile laboratories with competencies in-ground and aerial remote sensing as a key to enable interdisciplinary research in new fields and application scenarios.

Kristine Rose-Beers, Head of Conservation at the Chester Beatty in Dublin (Ireland) will talk about “Manuscript materiality and MOLAB: investigating the Islamic book at the Chester Beatty”. The presentation will offer a user’s perspective on working with the IPERION HS MOLAB team at the Chester Beatty in Dublin. Two projects have used the portable and non-invasive analytical techniques provided by MOLAB to investigate the materials of Qur’an manuscripts and advance understanding of Islamic manuscript material. Both projects were driven by the conservation team, and have required multidisciplinary collaboration including conservators, historians, and scientists. The results from these projects have added considerable new information to our understanding of these manuscripts: in particular, Islamic manuscript materiality in the early 8th century and the palette of a mid-16th century Qur’an from Shiraz. David Buti, responsible for MOLAB Helpdesk at CNR (Italy), will present “MOLAB: Bringing science to heritage objects of research“. His presentation will give an overview of the MOLAB history and the current offer of services; it will also focus on the lifecycle of MOLAB proposals and projects, from the user support to the physical access.
