Preserving our cultural heritage


This first 2016 issue of the Research*EU magazine is dedicated to this newly found power of cultural heritage, through the presentation of project results that raise hope of a more in-depth analysis, better conservation and more effective transmission of findings — notably thanks to new information and communication technologies.

This special feature is followed by eight sections providing insights into biology and medicine, social sciences and humanities, energy and transport, the environment, IT and telecommunications, industrial technologies, security and safety, and space, along with a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
