On Jan. 22-23, 2015, PhD students from the University of Brighton visited CNR-ISTI for a short training course on CNR’s visual technologies, which include some recent results of the ARIADNE Project. This visits comes as the first iteration of a training program agreed between CNR-ISTI and the UK project “SEAHA – Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts Heritage and Archaeology”.
SEAHA was designed to respond to a real need for training of interdisciplinary scientists and engineers. The training programme has been co-developed with a number of Partner institutions from the industrial, heritage, scientific, engineering and higher education sectors, which is to ensure that the Centre for Doctoral Training delivers the science and engineering that will make a real contribution to heritage organisations and industry.
The three core SEAHA universities are University College London, University of Oxford and University of Brighton.
SEAHA also has numerous research partners who include BBC Research & Development; KU Leuven; City University of Hong Kong; Columbia University; Centre for Research and Restoration of the Museums of France (C2RMF); Diamond Light Source; Fraunhofer Institute; National Physical Laboratory (UK); The Institute of Information Science and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council (ISTI-CNR); and Fayoum University (Egypt).

SEAHA is an 8-year initiative (2014-2022) to establish an infrastructure to meet challenges set by the heritage sector, industry and government (http://www.seaha-cdt.ac.uk/ ).
