3rd training school Start preventing - stop spending The MEMORI technology - how to manage your indoor air quality Organized by Association Culture & Work, Germany in cooperation with Norwegian Institute for Air Research, Norway and SIT - International Transporters, Spain October 3rd, 2013, 14 вЂ“ 17 h, Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Madrid, Room N.N. The training school is free for a limited number of participants including refreshments and papers. MEMORI offers a special training school for conservation and conservation science professionals, for curators, art transportation services and representatives of restoration companies. Students and young professionals working in related disciplines are also very welcome. (1) From the EU MEMORI project the MEMORI dosimeter, as a new micro sensor technology for preventive conservation, will be presented. (2) The workshop participants have the opportunity to get first-hand information on MEMORI measurements and analysis: MEMORI dosimeters were exposed during the last months in different world famous cultural heritage institutions and research institutes. Representatives of TATE (London), English Heritage (London), National Museum in Krakow (Poland) and SIT - International Transporters (Spain) will showcase the relevance of damage prevention and tell about their experiences with the measurements. Participants are invited for discussion. (3) An expert from business creation will present an overview of a survey conducted in 103 European museums on coping with damages by airborne pollutants. She will present and discuss what kind of support mechanisms cultural heritage institutions might need to convince operating bodies to invest earlier and more effectively in preventive conservation. She will also argue that this might be an attractive new business field for young restorers and conservation scientists. 1. MEMORI for measurements, mitigation and preventive conservation strategy Presenter: Terje GrГёntoft, NILU - Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) Terje GrГёntoft will describe the dosimeter system technology developed in the EU project MEMORI applied to assess indoor air quality for cultural heritage. A new developed portable and handheld reader will be demonstrated. The dosimeter results and evaluation will be explained by main characteristics of the locations as illustrated by modelling. Possible need for more detailed diagnostic measurements and possible mitigation methods will be presented. Illustrations may be given of the relationship between measurements of indoor air quality, such as MEMORI, or other degradation factors and the conservation state and lifetime of objects. 2. Discussion: Damages and risks to objects - MEMORI measurement experiences Moderators: Karin Drda-KГјhn (Association Culture & Work ACW, Germany), Terje GrГёntoft (NILU) During the last months 10 European museums, collections and art transportation services gained experience with the MEMORI technology. Some of them will join the MEMORI training school and present the occurrence of damage on different cultural heritage materials and objects from painting collections, historic houses and storing facilities. Come and discuss with N.N. / TATE London (United Kingdom) tbc Michal Obarzanowski / National Museum in Krakow (Poland) tbc Paul Lankester / English Heritage (United Kingdom) tbc Ana Tabuenca, SIT - International Transporters (Spain) tbc their experiences with measurements and results with the MEMORI technology. 3. вЂњNo awareness, no money, no staff? How to cope with the needs for damage preventionвЂќ Outcome of a survey on measuring airborne pollutants Presenter: Karin Drda-KГјhn (ACW) The case examples of the experts will show the high relevance of preventive conservation tackling airborne pollutants. However, according to a survey conducted by German Fraunhofer Society in 103 museums and cultural heritage institutions Europe wide within the MEMORI project there are three main reasons for not measuring airborne pollutants: (1) there is not enough awareness about airborne pollutants, (2) there is a lack of financial resources and (3) there is not enough staff in museums. The participants will discuss how to raise awareness about the overall topic in order to convince executing bodies to open financial resources and invest in damage prevention.
