Last Friday, a group of researchers from the InnoRenew CoE visited the Slovene Ethnographic Museum (SEM). SEM is the national museum of ethnology and the oldest Slovene institution of ethnology. It was founded in 1923 as a result of the development of Slovene ethnological and anthropological thought. This museum is a link between the past and present, traditional and modern culture, our culture and other cultures and the natural environment and civilisation.
Dr Miklós Krész, Dr Jakub Sandak, Dr Ana Slavec, Dr Anna Sandak, Dr Michael Mrissa and Dr Črtomir Tavzes were welcomed by a great group of SEM conservators who taught the InnoRenew CoE researchers about the complex world of cultural heritage collections and care.
Collaboration with SEM will help the InnoRenew CoE to achieve relevant outcomes in one of the boost projects: Advanced materials for cultural heritage storage. The InnoRenew CoE researchers and their SEM colleagues had a fruitful discussion about sensing technology solutions. They also identified attributes relevant for measurement and agreed on next steps for cooperation on the boost project.
