Heritage Science and Conservation Summer School on Stone and Environment

27 August 2019 - 30 August 2019


This four-day workshop for students, early-career researchers, and professionals will cover the principles and methods for understanding stone weathering and conservation within their environment. An international team will lecture on material characterisation, laboratory and specialised testing, climate change, air pollution, modelling approaches, and on-site evaluation. This will be contextualised within wider challenges of research and relevance, and supplemented by local excursions to share insight, discuss practical challenges, and opportunities for innovation.

PhD students of the Doctoral Schools of Natural Sciences and (Bioscience) Engineering are encouraged to participate.
The summer school will be open to graduate students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and early-career professionals in any field related to stone heritage science.
