EU Projects

As part of its multifaceted activities, the Byzantine and Christian Museum is always keen to participate in collaborative research programmes with a view to raising the visibility of its collections and making full use of its specialist staff’s know-how in applying new technologies to the management, conservation, documentation and promotion of cultural heritage artefacts. The Museum’s efforts thus stem from its desire to boost its social role by building channels of communication with contemporary society.
