US-Dutch International Research Experiences for Students (IRES)

Each summer, the program will support a cohort of 4 graduate and 1 undergraduate students for an eight-week session to conduct cultural heritage-related basic research in the Netherlands. The central research environment of the IRES students will be the Atelier Building (Ateliergebouw), a core facility grouping the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the Rijksmuseum (RMA), the scientific research arm of the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE), the Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), and the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI).  Collaborations with scientists at major U.S. museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art will provide a broad interdisciplinary focus to the IRES students, an attractive set of research questions on important artworks, and networking opportunities with leading cultural heritage scientists.
