ARCHLAB and MOLAB: 3rd Call now open

Access international archives (ARCHLAB) or bring hi-tech mobile diagnostic equipment to your institution (MOLAB).

IPERIONCH (Integrated Platform for the European Research Infrastructure On Cultural Heritage) is a European Commission funded initiative that aims to establish a pan-European research infrastructure in Heritage Science by integrating national world-class facilities at research centres, universities and museums. The cross-disciplinary consortium of 23 partners (from 12 Member States and the US) offers access to instruments, methodologies and data for advancing knowledge and innovation in the conservation and restoration of cultural heritage. The initiative currently has two open calls for proposals, under their ARCHLAB and MOLAB transnational access schemes. Closing date for both schemes is 15 September 2016.

ARCHLAB

IPERION CH is calling for applications from researcher teams working in Europe or in Associated Countries to visit one or more of the open Museums and Research Institutions, possessing wide archives on analytical and technical data on paintings, sculptures, manuscripts, metals, etc. ARCHLAB comprises an encyclopaedic archive of knowledge and technical data accumulated in the past and preserved at the most prestigious European museums or conservation research institutes.

The ARCHLAB Transnational Access program is offered by 10 participating organizations (providers):

The data and scientific records consist of documentation on the examination of constituent materials, technology, state of conservation, stratigraphy, etc. for each investigated object, including technical and scientific results, as well as images. Collections of samples are also available, taken from artworks and monuments during previous campaigns of study and conservation, and carefully archived after laboratory investigations.

An integral component of access to the archives will be the possibility to benefit from the knowledge of experts in the specific field for which access has been requested, who will collaborate in guiding the consultation and in the interpretation of data. Access to this data will open the way for deeper more wide-ranging studies than are currently possible, giving new perspectives for high-quality research both in the study and in the conservation of artefacts.

MOLAB

IPERIONCH is calling for applications from researcher teams or individuals working in Europe or in Associated Countries to utilise a set of portable instrumentations through the MOLAB Trans-national Access Service.

MOLAB enables European users to develop and pursue their research under conditions that ensure the complete safety of the Heritage objects under examination. MOLAB investigations are performed in situ without the need to move fragile artworks or precious archaeological pieces to a laboratory and using only non-invasive techniques, i.e. without any sampling or contact with the surface. MOLAB also allows immovable objects like sculptures, monuments and historical buildings to be studied without any sampling. Typical MOLAB users are Heritage researchers (either individuals or teams from public and/or private institutions).

What can MOLAB offer your project?

  • Your project may be orientated towards art-historical or archaeological questions (execution techniques, dating, under-drawings in paintings etc; assessing the state of conservation of artefacts; determine or test the optimal preservation strategy to slow down alteration processes; monitoring conservation treatments and informing risk assessment
  • MOLAB provides: analytical investigations carried out in situ on fragile artworks or precious archaeological pieces so that you don't have to move them to a laboratory. This access also allows immovable objects like sculptures, monuments and historical buildings to be studied
  • All the techniques are non-invasive, so there is strictly no sampling or contact with the surface under exam.
  • All our teams are made up of highly qualified and trained scientific staff that will accompany the portable instruments, help the Users and give tutorials on the use of the instrumentation.
  • All the data collected during the MOLAB access automatically belongs to you for publishing and disseminating.

Closing date for proposals under both schemes is 15 September 2016.
