Exploring Multidisciplinary Approaches to the Knowledge and Preservation of Cultural Heritage

Fellow heritage enthusiasts, picture this:

a gathering of brilliant minds, all coming together to unravel the mysteries of our cultural heritage. That’s right, I’m talking about the upcoming conference session organized by Heritage Science Austria (HSA), and let me tell you, it’s going to be a game-changer.

At the heart of this session lies the Venice Charter-1964, a guiding light in the preservation of monuments and sites. But here’s the twist: we’re not just relying on ancient wisdom here. Nope, we’re diving headfirst into the realm of modern science and technology. We’re talking about cutting-edge techniques including spectrometry, elemental analysis and XRF-based methods, gas-chromatography, thermoanalysis, microbiology, and environmental monitoring!

And it’s not just about the science nerds (no offense, fellow nerds). This session is for everyone—from eager students to seasoned experts. Whether you’re just starting out on your journey or you’ve been in the game for years, there’s something here for you.

But wait, there’s more! We’re not just talking about preserving the past; we’re also tackling the challenges of the present and future. So, if you’re passionate about heritage analysis and conservation, mark your calendars and join us for what promises to be an eye-opening and inspiring session. Together, let’s unlock the secrets of our past and ensure a vibrant future for generations to come.

See you there!
