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.
