|Issue Date:||1-Sep-2016||Publisher:||Springer Verlag||Source:||6th International European-Mediterranean Conference on Digital Heritage, EuroMed 2016; Nicosia; Cyprus; 31 October 2016 through 5 November 2016||Project:||ATHENA. Remote Sensing Science Center for Cultural Heritage||Abstract:||ATHENA H2020 Twinning project is a three-year duration project and its main objective is to strengthen the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) Remote Sensing Science and Geo-Environment Research Laboratory in the field of “Remote Sensing Archaeology” by creating a unique link between two internationally-leading research institutions: National Research Council of Italy (CNR) and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR). Through the ATHENA project, CUT’s staff research profile and expertise will be raised while S&T capacity of the linked institutions will be enhanced. In this paper the abovementioned objectives are presented through the various activities accomplished in the first year of the project. These activities include both virtual training by experts in topics such as active remote sensing sensors and sophisticated algorithms, as well as scientific workshops dedicated to specific earth observation and cultural heritage aspects. During this first year, outreached activities have been also performed aiming to promote remote sensing and other non-destructive techniques, including geophysics, for monitoring and safeguarding archaeological heritage of Cyprus. The ATHENA center aims to serve the local community of Cyprus, but at the same time to be established in the wider area of eastern Mediterranean.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9082||ISBN:||978-331948973-5||Rights:||© Springer International Publishing AG 2016.|
