IIC 2016 Training Programme: Analisi non distruttive per la conservazione del patrimonio culturale

L'International Institute for Conservation (IIC) all'interno dell'International Training Centre for Conservation (IIC-ITCC) promuove, facendo seguito al successo del programma formativo dello scorso anno, il programma di formazione 2016 sul tema delle analisi non distruttive per la conservazione del patrimonio culturale.


Il corso si svolgerà dal 13 al 18 Novembre 2016 presso il The Gugong Institute del Palace Museum di Pechino, Cina.
Il corso sarà tenuto da professori ed esperti nel campo ed è aperto ad un massimo di 24 partecipanti che possiedono un background di studi in scienze o conservazione e sono attualmente coinvolti in attività di analisi scientifica nella propria istituzione.

IIC International Training Centre for Conservation (IIC-ITCC)
2016 Training Programme Now Open for Application!

Non-Destructive Analysis in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage
13-18 November 2016
The Gugong Institute of the Palace Museum, Beijing, China

Following the success of the inaugural programme held last year, IIC is pleased to announce that the second training course organised in partnership with the Palace Museum, Beijing under the IIC-International Training Centre for Conservation (IIC-ITCC) will take place in November 2016. The theme of the forthcoming programme will focus on 'Non-Destructive Analysis' – a highly specialized field that is becoming increasingly accessible and popular in museum conservation. Led by renowned scholars and specialists in the field, the course is open to a maximum of 24 participants who possess a background in science or conservation studies and are currently engaged in the scientific analysis of artefacts within their institution.

Objectives

Both the study and conservation of museum collections call for the application of non-destructive analysis that, in comparison to conventional techniques, allows conservation scientists to obtain pre-requisite information without sampling which may compromise the structural integrity and aesthetic quality of objects. Through the identification of materials, and hence the techniques used to make objects, we can reach back through time to develop a deeper understanding of the history, craftsmanship, provenance and originality of objects. A sensitive and precise analysis can give insights into the degradation process of materials and the artefact’s underlying condition. This is essential for conservators to formulate the most appropriate treatment proposal in order to preserve cultural treasures in their most authentic or appropriate condition.

With the aim of training conservation scientists in both the theory and application of non-destructive analysis, this 5-day course will inform participants of the new methods that are best suited for specific problems in the museum context and the associated challenges that arise when analysing museum objects. Participants will be guided in the basics of operating associated analytical equipment, and will explore the advantages and limitations of different techniques. Participants will also compare the use of different static facilities and portable equipment. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be in a better position to determine the appropriate non-destructive analytical approaches to solve practical cases in their own particular situations.

Methodology
The course will be conducted in English, combining theory and practice by means of pre-course preparation, lectures, case studies, discussions, demonstration and practical session in the conservation laboratories, museum visits and excursions. Participants will be actively involved in sharing their own knowledge and experiences and participating in group work.
