Structure

CHANGE structure is detailed in the figure presented above.

The scientific activities are grouped into three Work Packages (WPs), which are WP3, WP4 & WP5 and form the breeding ground for ESR training (WP2). WP3 and WP4 cover technology aspects while WP5 is application oriented. WP3 and WP4 will be run in parallel so that ESRs working on the development of new knowledge in ICT might deploy it to different applications and contribute to the work carried out transversally by other ESRs studying the change of specific materials and associated artefacts through the optimization of tools and methodologies. One WP (WP6) is dedicated to the dissemination, exploitation and communication of results. All ESRs will be involved in this WP which should open new job opportunities. WP2 to WP6 will be managed under the umbrella of the coordinating partner (WP1). All WPs are strongly interlinked to each other to respond to the needs of end-users through a constant “come and go” between the acquisition, analysis, interpretation, visualisation, and evaluation of data. Additional information about the WPs can be found below.

Lead Beneficiary: NTNU
Objectives:

  1. Ensure the overall coordination of the project, including its technical, administrative, and financial aspects.
  2. Ensure the communication between the consortium and EC and the successful recruitment of ESRs.
  3. Monitor activities in all WPs and manage training activities.
  4. Ensure all aspects of the EC requirements for communication and reporting are met.

Lead Beneficiary: NTNU
Objectives:

  1. Organisation, coordination, control, and supervision of all training activities local and in the network.
  2. Elaboration and control of Career Development Plan for every ESR as well as verification of effectiveness of training.

Lead Beneficiary: UBFC
Objectives:

  1. To setup adapted and scalable acquisition systems for shape and/or appearance change capture according to the expressed need.
  2. To setup appropriate strategies for change assessment for multi-temporal acquisition (data registration Vs. sensors registration).
  3. To ensure the availability and the quality of imaging data for change analysis.

Lead Beneficiary: WUT
Objectives: Develop

  1. Computational robust methods for change detection and quantification of CH assets from multi modal and multi scale data.
  2. Methods for change visualization of CH assets from multi scale and multi modal data.
  3. Unify the data representation and the processing to ensure integrity and interoperability.
  4. Computational methods and procedure for validation of change detection assessment based on expert feedback.

Lead Beneficiary: C2RMF
Objectives:

  1. Understand the needs of CH actors in the use of imaging techniques to monitor artifacts during their alteration and conservation (contextualization).
  2. Implement the best approach according to the materials and the corresponding artifacts (specification).
  3. Interpret the data collected and processed and combine them with other existing data (historic records, analyses, etc) for a better appreciation of surface and/or structural change.
  4. Validate and integrate the knowledge gained in WP3 and WP4 in the protocols developed.

Lead Beneficiary: HES SO
Objectives:

  1. Ensure a successful communication, dissemination, and exploitation of the project results and scientific advancements.
  2. Ensure communication for the non-scientific community, increase the commercial impact of partners, demonstrate the benefits and positive promotion of topics to potential students.
