The results have been published for the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPICH) Joint Call for transnational research proposals entitled ‘Conservation, Protection and Use’. For the Dutch part of this call, NWO allocated funds that were earmarked for NICAS.
We are happy to announce that the project ‘Crystallization damage at the interfaces of artworks (CRYSTINART)’ was one of the projects that was awarded funding in a highly competitive international field. The project leader is dr. Noushine Shahidzadeh, member of the NICAS Scientific Working Group. The project will be a collaboration between the University of Amsterdam, the Eindhoven University of Technology, the Università di Bologna and the University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour, with the Rijksmuseum as associate partner. Once the project starts, more information will be made available on the NICAS website.
The JPICH Conservation, Protection and Use Joint Call is the fifth of a series of joint transnational calls within the context of the JPI Cultural Heritage. This call has the purpose of enabling the emergence of new research-based frameworks that incorporate knowledge, concepts and values to help manage the ongoing and interlaced changes that affect cultural heritage in relation to its physical and social environment.
The JPICH Conservation, Protection and Use Joint Call for Proposals was formally published on 13th May 2019. At the deadline (11th September 2019). 62 eligible proposals were submitted.
