The 14th November Vincent Detalle and Veronique Vergès-Belmin of the Laboratoire de Recherche des Monuments Historiques (Champs-sur-Marne (F)) have visited the laboratories of Veneto Nanotech in order to evaluate the capabilities of the plasma prototype developed by Nadir in the frame of the PANNA project.
PANNA partners met in Plovdiv for a technical meeting to close the second year of activities and organize the activities for the last year of the project. The judgment from the EC reviewers after the Mid-Term assessment was more than satisfactory and the PANNA partners are preparing for the dissemination of their results around Europe.
PANNA project was present at the European Workshop on Cultural Heritage Preservation, held in Bolzano (Italy) on September 16th-18th, with an oral presentation on the “Preliminary assessment of atmospheric plasma torches for cleaning of architectural surfaces”.

Two years from the start of the project, she reports on the development progress of the plasma prototype and the new protective coatings.
