Business Unit “Cultural Heritage Research”
The business unit Cultural Heritage Research deals with a wide and varied range of topics. Among others, these include analyzing the room climate in historical buildings and devising suitable concepts to control it, developing new solutions for museum depots and archives, renovating museums in a sustainable manner, and researching into the preservation of historical monuments at the Fraunhofer Center Benediktbeuern. The focus of our work is on preventive conservation - i.e. finding ways to prevent damage to art and cultural assets in the long term by establishing suitable general conditions. This approach is also transferred and applied to the preservation of historical monuments and archaeological sites.
