The Research Assistant, supervised by the group leader, will work on the development of a website for quantitative risk analysis of historic objects. The developed software is a web tool supporting the decision-making process related to the conditions during the exhibition and storing collections as well as in shaping the loan policy between museums addressed to restorers, registrars and managers of cultural heritage institutions. The website, designed as an integrated platform based on the client-server architecture, will enable calculation of the quantitative risk assessment of objects deterioration, taking into account various types of risk agents such as inappropriate environmental parameters (temperature, relative humidity, light intensity, etc.), fire or the deposition of particles on architectural surfaces.
