The insiTUMlab is a new born analytical infrastructure for non-destructive in-situ studies of Cultural Heritage, part of the Chair of Conservation-Restoration, Art Technology and Conservation Science of the Technical University Munich. It is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the next five years (starting in 2022) and afterwards, it will be supported by the TUM.
The new facility aims to build knowledge on complex queries about cultural heritage. It offers a set of cutting-edge non-destructive, complementary, and portable analytical tools able to support studies on site of architectural surfaces and artworks for their understanding and preservation.
Official external partners are the Doerner Institut; the Deutsches Museum, the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart and the University of Barcelona.
