Government authorities, restoration architects and conservation scientists have always had to face the problem of deterioration of historic building materials, in particular stone, wood and glass; an issue that has become more and more urgent since climate change has worsened natural decay and the impact of atmospheric pollution.

In addition, in recent years socio-economic requirements have claimed for a more sustainable use of existing building heritage. The NANOMATCH project will address this issue through the development of a class of innovative consolidants specifically designed to meet the requirements of the historic substrates and to identify high performance products to recondition the market dedicated to the conservation of the built heritage.
Combining the most recent advances in the fields of nanotechnologies and conservation science, the NANOMATCH project will address these issues by developing a new class of innovative nano-structured materials, tailored specifically to historic materials and adapted to a climate change context. They will provide enhanced sustainability, compatibility and efficiency compared to conventional conservation products, thus offering a real alternative and renewing the market dedicated to the conservation of the built heritage.

Subprogramme Area: Development of advanced compatible materials and techniques and their application for the protection, conservation and restoration of cultural heritage assets
