Great opportunity! CHSOS has scheduled its April Training program close to TECHNART conference in Catania, Sicily. Participants while in Catania can also enjoy TECHNART, an international conference on Non-destructive and microanalytical techniques in art and cultural heritage. “The aim of TECHNART 2015 is to provide a scientific forum to present and promote the use of analytical spectroscopy techniques in the field of cultural heritage. The conference builds on the momentum of TECHNART 2013 offering an outstanding and unique opportunity for exchanging knowledge on leading edge developments.
