The main objectives of the Workshop, which have been achieved at a quite satisfactory level, can be summarized as follows:

  • To improve mutual knowledge and acquaintance between MC Members, and WG members;
  • To present current ongoing research, and inform specialists of different fields, all working towards conservation of WCHOs (Wooden Objects belonging to the Cultural Heritage), about the work of their colleagues and the scientific work being carried out in different Institutions;
  • To provide an opportunity for discussing interdisciplinary subjects, which are very important for study and conservation of WCHOs;
  • To identify the main subjects to be discussed in forthcoming activities.
