Within the EU Horizon 2020 NANORESTART research project, new materials and treatment methods based on nanotechnology have been developed and tested. NANORESTART systems may provide several advantages over conventional products, particularly in terms of flexibility (application to different types of substrates), performance, efficiency, retreatability, selectivity and sensitivity of conservation treatments.

Five product families and fifteen key Product Solutions have been selected as cleaning systems for cultural heritage, surface consolidation of fibrous materials, coatings to protect metal and plastics surfaces, and sensing and diagnostic systems for degradation products.


The final conference of the project will be open to the public and it will take place at the National Museum of Denmark, on the 29th and 30th of November 2018.


The final conference has been selected as one of the initiatives to celebrate the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

Recently, the CSGI consortium, Project coordinator, organized the "Nanomaterias and advanced solutions for the restoration of Cultural Heritage" session in the frame of the NANOINNOVATION 2018 Conference, held in Rome on 11-14 September. In that context, the NANORESTART Project results were presented.

Here a link to the NANOINNOVATION 2017 Website, and here a direct link to the "Nanomaterias and advanced solutions for the restoration of Cultural Heritage" session programme.

We are pleased to report that the NANORESTART project was selected to participate in the EU Open Day on the 5th May in Brussels, Belgium. An interactive Project stand was placed in the "Research & Innovation - From Stone Age to Space Age and Science" area of the event, visited by more tha 15000 people.

Prof. Baglioni has been invited to the High-level H2020 conference of the European Year of Cultural Heritage to present the new materials developed within the Nanorestart project and the new ECHOES Cluster.

The event had place in Brussels on 20thof March 2018 and has been organized by the European Commission to showcase the dialogue between contemporary European society and the most promising innovations in the field of cultural heritage.
