IRES Program description
This US-Netherlands international research experience program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (IRES 1460143). Four US-based graduate students and one undergraduate student will be selected to travel to the Netherlands from June-July, 2017 to conduct research in Cultural Heritage Science.
The science and engineering students selected will perform research in three interrelated research streams spanning Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering, as well as Cultural Heritage Science. Over the eight week duration of the program, they will participate in interdisciplinary seminars at the interface of science and art and will be required to write two blog entries to share their IRES experience. At the conclusion of their program, participating students will compile final project reports.
