THE FIRST PUBLIC TRAINING

The training organized by the European project APACHE and the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac aims to explore the consortium’s
activities. It seeks to transfer knowledge generated during the development of the project within academic, professional potential users and industrial domains, in addition to upskill key stakeholders and staff on the use of the novel materials/tools/solutions applied to the preventive conservation of cultural heritage.

WHEN: on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd of September 2021

WHERE: musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac in Paris, France.

>>Presentations and demonstrations will be in English, without simultaneous translation.

ORGANISATION:

THE TRAINING FOCUSES ON THREE ESSENTIAL SECTIONS:

PRESENTATIONS

Lectures and presentations on the theoretical, research and implementation aspects of the novel materials and solutions.

WORKSHOP

Five practical workshops around the application methodologies and the use of some developed technologies.

OPEN DEBATE

A final open debate about the new materials, feedback and sharing of experience after the practical activities.
