Materials and Techniques for the Restoration of Monuments 
Compatibility, Durability, Sustainability and Economy issues in Retrofitting Heritage Structures 
6 - 20 July 2014, Archaeological site of Dion, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, GREECE

The society awareness about monumental heritage preservation has been in general increased internationally, because of the high recognition of the "values" associated with the civilization of human genius and the economy related to cultural tourism.

The value of a monumental structure or area is increased after its preservation. However, the cost of restoration projects is relatively high and the longevity of the heritage integrity after repair interventions is often questionable, because of the application of incompatible materials, which create secondary damage problems. 

Therefore, the repair materials should be designed and tested to be the most compatible, durable, sustainable and cost effective among the available alternatives.

To succeed in this holistic process of combined principles a knowledge background is required concerning both historic materials' technology and modern materials' science and advances. Futhermore, experience from practise and on site applications is of paramount importance to conclude about an appropriate repair material.

The course MARE.14 aims at participants' skills in following this holistic process for making decision about repair materials and techniques, whose effectiveness will be documented by testing them properly.
