NANOFORART 2nd Annual Consortium Meeting

Held in Madrid on January 9 2014, the 2nd NANOFORART Annual Consortium Meeting has provided a fundamental opportunity for information exchange, transfer of knowledge and expertise between the project partners. Stimulating discussion has been carried out and proposals have been presented involving all the project Work Packages. The wide project productivity, in terms of developed systems for consolidation, pH control and cleaning of works of art, has been fully examined.

As both conservators and scientific institutions are carefully assessing the formulations devised in the first year for the preservation of wall paintings, stones, paper and canvas, forthcoming challenges involve the design of systems for the conservation of highly sensitive substrates such as parchment and leather. Characterization of nanomaterials and evaluation of their safety provide a constant and fundamental support to determine the feasibility of the produced systems. As a result, the project is building up a new palette of restoration tools for end users.
