The meeting NANO-SYSTEMS: Research and Applications on Cultural Heritage is coordinated by APACHE and will be held both in-person and online at Caparica, Portugal, on 16th May 2022. The focus of the meeting is on how Nano-materials exhibit characteristics that are peculiar and different than those of bulk materials. This can result in enhanced chemical, electrical, magnetic, and optical properties that are important for numerous applications.
Thanks to this meeting the conservation company NEON Art Conservation and the NOVA School of Science and Technology seek to explore the world of Nano-systems applied to the conservation of cultural heritage, through a workshop divided on two essential sections: firstly, theorical lectures and presentations on research and implementation aspects of Nano-materials and then two practical workshops with the application methodologies and the use of some Nano-systems.
For all those who will not be able to attend the event in person, there will be a screening of the lectures of the conference.
