The Archäometrie Kolleg is an initiative of the University of Tübingen and the Curt-Engelhorn Centre for Archaeometry in Mannheim sponsored by the Klaus Tschira Foundation. Its mission is to offer basic and advanced training courses on selected archaeometric subjects.
Once a year, this is done in the form of a basic boot camp, which provides an overview and basics. And in spring and fall, workshops give a deeper insight into a selected field or subject. The goal is to share and spread the knowledge about archaeometry as a cornerstone of cultural research.
The Curt-Engelhorn-Zentrum für Archöometrie (CEZA) is a subsidiary of the Curt-Engelhorn-Foundation for the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museums and a nationally and internationally operating research institute, which answers questions of natural and cultural history with most modern, innovative technology and research. In addition to its role as a renowned research institution, CEZA also acts as a service provider for public institutions, companies and private individuals. The portfolio of scientific research includes authenticity, material identification, origin, technology, age determination, bioarchaeology and climate research. Through its participation in EU projects, international cooperation and publications in internationally recognised journals, CEZA's work is also visible internationally.www.ceza.de
