ABOUT THE PROJECT
The TRIQUETRA project aims at creating an evidence-based assessment platform that allows precise risk stratification, and also creates a database of available mitigation measures and strategies, acting as a Decision Support Tool towards efficient risk mitigation and site remediation.
The overall approach of Triquetra is based on three distinct steps:
1. Risk Identification
2. Risk Quantification
3. Risk Mitigation
This “trifecta” approach (hence the name Triquetra) creates a framework of risk assessment and risk mitigation so as to tackle as many of these risks as possible, in the most efficient way available.
A total of 21 organizations from 7 countries participate in the project, including 8 Universities and Research Organizations and 6 Cultural Heritage Authorities. The project started on 01/01/2023 and will last for 3 years. TRIQUETRA project is funded from the EU HE research and innovation programme under GA No. 101094818.
Addresed Cultural Heritage Typologies
Mainland – rural areas are less likely to be shielded in remote areas with scarce population and lack of surrounding infrastructure.
Underwater sites are increasingly affected by climate change (e.g. changes in the chemical composition of oceans).
Coastal areas shall be a focus for the approach to validate its various water-protection and water-related damage detecting techniques.
Decision Support Platform
By integrating all the modules and technologies in TRIQUETRA, a DSS will be developed and validated in actual working conditions in 8 different pilot sites across Europe, spanning a wide range of archaeological periods, CH typology, structures and materials.
The TRIQUETRA DSS
In TRIQUETRA, we will develop a DSS that will enable stakeholders and decision makers to make the most educated decisions related to risk mitigation and remediation of endangered CH sites. In addition, TRIQUETRA will develop a set of novel nanotechnology based coatings for preserving CH sites, without compromising their authenticity. TRIQUETRA will put together a Knowledge Base platform, comprising all existing methods and techniques for remediating such CH sites, while also developing novel CH protection technologies, going beyond state of the art
