Calls for Trans-National Access (MOLAB)

IPERIONCH is calling for applications from researcher teams or individuals working in Europe or in Associated Countries to utilise a set of portable instrumentations through the MOLAB Trans-national Access Service.


What can MOLAB offer your project?

  • Your project may be orientated towards art‐historical or archaeological questions (execution techniques, dating, under‐drawings in paintings etc; assessing the state of conservation of artefacts; determine or test the optimal preservation strategy to slow down alteration processes; monitoring conservation treatments and informing risk assessment
  • MOLAB provides: analytical investigations carried out in situ on fragile artworks or precious archaeological pieces so that you don't have to move them to a  laboratory. This access also allows immovable objects like sculptures, monuments and historical buildings to be studied
  • All the techniques are noninvasive, so there is strictly no sampling or contact with the surface under exam.
  • All our teams are made up of highly qualified and trained scientific staff that will accompany the portable instruments, help the Users and give tutorials on the use of the instrumentation.
  • All the data collected during the MOLAB access automatically belongs to you for publishing and disseminating
