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.

The second day will include demonstrations of products developed by APACHE’s partners: preventive conservation equipment and decision-making software for the preservation of collections. These workshops will take place in the foyer of the auditorium, with a capacity of 15 participants each. Five workshops will take place in parallel throughout the day, each participant having the opportunity to register for three of them from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., from 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. A closing discussion will complete the training program.
