Technology: 3th TechnoHeritage Congress


TechnoHeritage 2017, that is the 3rd International Congress Science and Technology for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage, will be take place in Càdiz, ES, on May 21-24 2017.

The Spanish Network of Science and Technology for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage is the organizer of the event. E-RIHS partners are part of the scientific committee.
