Sep 27, 2013

The Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser of FORTH organized the 5th Annual Meeting of the Climate for Culture project that was held on the grounds of FORTH, Heraklion Crete, Greece on September 23-27 2013. The CLIMATE FOR CULTURE project estimates the impacts of changing climate conditions on historic buildings and their vast collections in Europe and the Mediterranean.

A multidisciplinary research team of 27 partners aims to identify the damage potential of our cultural heritage most at risk, so as to encourage the development of strategies to mitigate the effects of climate change, including through policy makers and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports. Furthermore, the project provides insight into the possible socio-economic impact of climate change, given the importance of cultural heritage to Europe’s economy.
