Scientific Research

The Scientific Research Working Group is a venue to discuss in detail new research technologies and methodologies across many types of materials and collections. Application of methods and techniques for specific materials or objects are considered in the appropriate ICOM-CC working group. The areas of interest of the Scientific Research Working Group include: material degradation studies; non-invasive analysis and characterization; portable instrumentation, sensors and dosimeters; scientific methods for dating, provenancing and authentication; and statistics, modeling and chemometrics for cultural heritage. By exploring heritage materials, their construction, and mechanisms of deterioration, we aim to improve the conservation of moveable and immoveable heritage.
