MED-QUAD in Jordan enhances innovative tools to advance research in cultural heritage
September 26, 2023
The ARCHEO Living LAB at the Al-Balqa Applied University in Irbid, Jordan, hosted a visit aimed to give the City Development Group (CDG) members from Jordan first-hand knowledge of the equipment and facilities at the ARCHEO LAB and to understand how the Ph.D. research thesis could apply these resources.
During this meeting, participants were able to familiarize themselves with the state-of-the-art equipment and tools available. Of particular interest was the 3D printer, poised to play a pivotal role in their research. The meeting was convened under the MED-QUAD project, aimed at fostering collaboration and innovation among Mediterranean countries to tackle common challenges in preserving and promoting Cultural Heritage. The gathering marked a vital moment in the partnership between the MED-QUAD team and the City Development Group (CDG) from Yarmouk University (Faculty of Archeology and Anthropology, Department of Conservation and Management of Heritage Resources).
Subsequently, the participants engaged in a fruitful discussion on the technical aspects of the project. This included considerations on selecting artefacts, the intricacies of the 3D printing process, and the development of the augmented reality environment.
