Scientific research gives us insight into understanding, valuing, managing and preserving art and heritage. As a scientific research and knowledge centre, we offer the possibility to perform a variety of analyses.
We conduct scientific research to analyse your art or heritage object, guarantee their preservation, detect risk factors and develop tailor-made techniques for treatment where possible. The Art Research Lab works in accordance with the principles of an integrated risk-management approach, whereby the use of harmful pesticides and methods is kept to a minimum. Preferably, the emphasis is on preventive measures. Integrated control consists of 5 steps: detect, block, limit, combat, prevent.
