Quantitative assessment of risk of physical damage of cultural objects due to climate variations

HERIe development was part of the research project HERIVERDE “Energy efficiency of museum and library institutions” (2013-2017) which was supported by a grant PBS2/A9/24/2013 from the Polish National Centre for Research and Development within the Applied Research Programme.

Since 2017, the Getty Conservation Institute has provided funds for further development of the software, as part of its Managing Collection Environments Initiative. The development work is funded in part by the statutory research fund of the Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences.
