Stop Fungi

Description

By cooperation between Universität für Weiterbildung Krems, Universität für Bodenkultur Wien und WD Austria, Mittelberg the research basis for the SME WD should be widened.The programme "Innovationsscheck“ is designed for this aime. In the particular case it should be applied for the preservation of archival material as cultural heritage. The value of the cultural heritage archival material cannot be over estimated, as the historical decisions are the basis for today´s and future decisions. The past actions are documented first hand in the archives. Microorganisms are one of the most threatening danger for this archival material with the potence to destroy it completely. The aim of the work is to further develope a material, which was previously tested and found promising by SME Engel. The material should be tested by BOKU concerning the effect on microorganisms. Universität für Weiterbildung Krems will be concerned about the compatibility of the material in respect to the archival material. Furthermore the application of the product must be prepared and preparations for a "Forschungs-, Entwicklungs und Innovationsvorhaben" for a hand held device für figting mould be conservators will be started. This includes the effectivness of the material as well as the possible health risks and the usability of the procedure. Z weiter zu entwickeln und seine Wirksamkeit gegen Mikroorganismen zu prüfen (BOKU ), seine Kompatibilität mit den Materialien der historischen Archivalien zu bewerten (Donau-Universität Krems ) und eine Konzeptentwicklung, sowie Vorarbeiten für technologische Problemlösungen für die Anwendung der Ergebnisse an unserem kulturellen Erbe zu erstellen. Außerdem sollen Vorbereitungsarbeiten für ein Forschungs-, Entwicklungs- und Innovationsvorhaben zum Thema „hand held device for conservators“ zur Schimmelbekämpfung in historischen Räumen stattfinden. Dabei müssen die Wirksamkeit des zu überprüfenden Mittels, die von ihm eventuell ausgehende Gefährdung für den anwendenden Restaurator sowie die sich daraus ergebende Technik der Anwendung erarbeitet werden.
