Between 2009 and 2014, the Institute for Nuclear Research (Atomki), the Centre for Energy Research (EK) and the Wigner Research Centre for Physics (Wigner RCP) successfully participated in the CHARISMA (Cultural Heritage Advanced Research Infrastructures: Synergy for a Multidisciplinary Approach to Conservation / Restoration) EU FP7 project, which provided access to expertise in the field of cultural heritage and materials testing methods. This activity continued in the Iperion CH (Integrated Platform for the European Research Infrastructure ON Culture Heritage) project (2015-2019) project, in which Atomki, EK and Wigner RCP were also partners. Within the framework of the project, the members of Iperion CH provided access to their research equipment and instruments used in cultural heritage research, and made their expertise available through cooperation. All three institutions have had a close relationship with the Hungarian National Museum for many years, which is indicated by framework agreements and joint research projects. The Hungarian National Museum participated in the ARIADNE European project (2013-2017), which aimed to integrate existing archaeological data infrastructures in order to provide interested parties with access to otherwise scattered archaeological data through a unified system. The Iperion CH community, complemented by new partners, including from the ARIADNE community, has set itself the goal of creating a distributed European infrastructure. An initiative called E-RIHS (European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science) was added to the ESFRI roadmap in March 2016. Hungary was one of the twelve European countries that made a declaration of intent. Work started within the Iperion CH project continues in the Iperion HS (Integrated Platform for the European Research Infrastructure ON Heritage) project (2020-2023), while ARIADNE proceeds with ARIADNEPlus (2019-2023).
