The Central Hub

The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS) supports research on heritage interpretation, preservation, documentation and management.

It comprises E-RIHS Headquarters (as central hub) and National Hubs, fixed and mobile national infrastructures of recognized excellence, physically accessible collections/archives and virtually accessible heritage data. Both cultural and natural heritage are addressed: collections, buildings, archaeological sites, digital and intangible heritage.

E-RIHS provides state-of-the-art tools and services to cross-disciplinary research communities advancing understanding and preservation of global heritage. It provides access to a wide range of cutting-edge scientific infrastructure, methodologies, data and tools, training in the use of these tools, public engagement, access to repositories for standardized data storage, analysis and interpretation. E-RIHS enables the community to advance heritage science and global access to the distributed infrastructures in a coordinated and streamlined way.
