E-RIHS: Towards a European research infrastructure

Our colleague Wim Fremout coordinates the Belgian node of the European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS), supporting the interpretation, documentation, preservation, and management of heritage in Europe. Explore further on the new E-RIHS website.

Our colleague Wim Fremout is the coordinator of the Belgian node of the European research infrastructure for heritage science (E-RIHS). The Belgian node was founded in 2019 and currently consists of three renowned federal scientific institutions: KIK-IRPA, KMKG-MRAH and KBR. KIK-IRPA offers access to cutting-edge laboratories, tools, and data and provides training opportunities in heritage science. In the European project IPERION HS, KIK-IRPA and KMKG-MRAH participate in the transnational access platform ARCHLAB, which provides access to archives and expertise and will be part of E-RIHS. E-RIHS aims to support heritage interpretation, documentation, preservation, and management research.

Currently, the national hubs are active in Belgium, Cyprus, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Slovenia and the United Kingdom. National Nodes’ Members offer access to research facilities, training, consultancy, technology transfer, and dissemination, regulated by specific policies.
