Restoration and conservation of coastal and submerged heritage using solutions based on nanotechnologies - MARINA Workshop
24 October 2017

Rue du Trône, 98
MARINA Project organizes the workshop "Restoration and conservation of coastal and submerged heritage using solutions based on nanotechnologies", with a view to co-constructing a common understanding of concerns and barriers on the adoption of RRI approach in the context of shared nanotech-marine R&D and policies.
With several coastal zones being among the densest populated areas, mixed metropolitan coastal landscapes have emerged around historic port cities posing new challenges for conservation, management and transmission of existing tangible and intangible values. The nanotechnologies constitute a great promise for facing these challenges in the domain of environmental conservation, giving that, it was found important analysing the links of nanotechnology to the marine environment through cultural heritage.
The workshop is addressed to explore potential synergies between MARINA and the domain of nanotechnologies, amongst the most relevant H2020 enabling technologies. This “bridge” will define the transferability of the MARINA results in the nanotechnologies on one hand, and enrich the knowledge base of MARINA with valuable insights. We will create added value through a collaborative debate by using participatory and interactive methods, among different subjects, organisations and initiatives invited. Based on a 3 triggering questions, we will use them as interaction start-up enabling the discussion of potential solutions and methods bounding the 3 different stages of heritage governance: restoration, fruition, conservation.
Why participate - The main result will be the definition of a path towards the exploitation of methodologies and policies helping the local communities, local and national stakeholders and policymakers to remove barriers limiting the adoption of RRI. The participants will co-construct a common understanding of concerns and barriers on the adoption of RRI approach in the context of shared nanotech-marine R&D and policies; this will be a RRI-valuable result. Additionally, this workshop will help to evaluate the interest of the Nanotech and Heritage-related communities in inheriting the MARINA-RRI knowledge base and update it also by methods developed and services offered by MARINA-RRI partners.
