Research and Development

Dr. Tiziana Lombardo, Geologist

The conservators themselves initiate research and development in conservation or restoration methods. Working closely with the laboratory, they investigate problems, try out solutions, and develop methodology. This intimate collaboration, one of the strengths of the Collection Centre, is promoted by the units’ spatial proximity. Methods developed here are part of the range of services that the Collection Centre offers its partners. The laboratory is also actively engaged in the new COST action IE0601 (Wood Science for Conservation of Cultural Heritage).
