The last decades have witnessed marked achievements of STEM in understanding the remains of humans, animals, and plants from the past by analyzing different materials, both inorganic and organic. These developments have opened-up the great potential for increasing our understanding of cultural heritage, and hence for developing better strategies for its protection and management. At the same time, the social and economic transformations since the 1990s have affected the sector of cultural heritage protection and management, inducing changes in its conceptual basis, scientific background, education, legislation, as well as the technological tools at its disposal. Among other, this led to the development of new forms of market-based heritage expert services.

The HERISTEM strategic partnership of museum, small business and higher education institutions comprises ARHEJ doo., Kaducej doo., the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage in Slovenia, the National Museum in Belgrade, and the Universities of Cambridge, Ljubljana, Sarajevo and Zagreb. This EU Erasmus+ funded programme has been created with the aim of increasing the STEM skills and knowledge of both professionals already in the field and students of heritage disciplines, thus increasing their capacities in job markets.


The Cambridge team will be offering specific training in geoarchaeology approaches in the field and laboratory as well techniques of artefact analysis suitable for curated artefact collections.
