For two days, the participants got to take part in interdisciplinary cultural heritage projects, discuss future collaborations and how a national research infrastructure for heritage science can be developed. Read more about the meeting here .

The conference had a broad representation of professionals in the field of cultural heritage. Here came, for example, conservators, archaeologists, engineers and visualization experts from museums as well as authorities, universities, research institutes and the business community.

Among other things, the participants took part in a number of advanced and innovative projects in, for example, DNA analysis, art conservation, 3D visualization, lighting design and opportunities in neutron and synchrotron technology. During day 2, group workshops were held, where the participants got to immerse themselves further in various current topics in heritage science.
