E-RIHS.ro is included in the Romanian Roadmap since 2017 and maintained a top position in the 2021 Roadmap. The national node partnership is based on a memorandum of understanding between 5 research institutes, 2 art universities and 1 museum, and enlists a number of 9 affiliates (3 universities, 5 museums and 1 research institute), so far.
National Institute for Research and Development in Optoelectronics (INOE)
Services offered in the country
The Romanian National node provides services within all the 4 platforms:
ARCHLAB – access to national cultural heritage archives and cultural publications (analogue, photo and video archives)
DIGILAB – open access to an ongoing compilation of resources that contains over 1300 spectroscopy spectra linked to over 650 reference materials (paint components, artist colour paints, etc.).
FIXLAB – complex analysis and characterisation of the materials by corroborating complementary atomic, molecular and nuclear spectroscopic techniques, advanced microscopy (SEM, AFM), dating (14C or thermoluminescence), X-ray imaging (2D and 3D), Electronic spin resonance etc.
MOLAB services provided by E-RIHS.ro cover the whole range of conservation needs starting from investigation and documentation, followed by analysis, characterisation and diagnosis, if necessary – intervention, and end with monitoring. All the services provided within MOLAB rely non/micro-invasive techniques and do not require sampling or sample preparation. Services provided have as a result complex data fusion packages that corroborate imaging with spectral data, based on the specificity of each casuistic.
