Nanomaterials for the Restoration of works of art

Funded by Horizon 2020, "NANORESTART NANOmaterials for the REStoration of works of ART" ­will develop a new framework with respect to the state of the art of conservation science.
It is devoted to the development of nanomaterials to ensure the long­term protection and security of modern/contemporary cultural heritage by taking into account environmental and human risks, feasibility and the cost of materials.
The project brings together centres of excellence in the field of the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials, world- leading chemical industries and SMEs operating in R&D and International and European centres for conservation, education and museums.
They will assess new materials through their use with artefacts in urgent need of conservation and then disseminate the resulting knowledge internationally.
