We will soon be advertising a full range of projects for SEAHA scholarships to start in September 2015. Please watch this space for further details of the heritage science opportunities on offer. Projects will be fully funded by EPSRC for 4 years for UK residents (see the EPSRC website for eligibility requirements: http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/skills/students/help/eligibility/).
UCL’s successful EPSRC bid for a Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA) has attracted keen industry and heritage support, especially among museums.
Arius Technology, the high-resolution scanner manufacturer, is donating a start-of-the-art 3D colour scanner to the new Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology, hosted at UCL.
This next generation technology – with improved resolution and colour depth compared to previous scanners – will allow the Centre to build on UCL’s world-leading research in 3D scanning, led by Professor Stuart Robson, Head of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) and on the university’s outstanding capabilities in heritage museum technologies, developed by the UCL Petrie Museum.
Speaking about the donation, Director of SEAHA, Professor May Cassar said:
“The generosity of Arius Technology demonstrates great confidence in our ground-breaking endeavour to train the next generation of heritage scientists.”
“This state of the art 3D colour scanner will make a major contribution to the development of the skills base of our students by marrying cultural heritage research with cutting edge technology.”
