CHIRON – Cultural heritage informatics research oriented network

CHIRON was a 4-year Marie-Curie EU-funded project providing research training fellowships for graduates wishing to start a research career in the field of IT applications to the research, conservation, and presentation of tangible Cultural Heritage. The project consisted of joint training programs and individual research carried out by the fellows within a coordinated framework at participating partner institutions, which provided an integrated coverage of the different specializations adding a common perspective and coherent approach. A wide range of technologies was covered, from database to multimedia and state-of-art 3D modelling and visualization applications to Cultural Heritage. The partnership included the leading European academic and research centres on the subject and the ones offering training on it.
