Applied research in the field of historic building stock

Three stipends for applied research were awarded in the last academic year 2005/2006. Thanks to the support from Fond PSS, a.s. one stipend was awarded to AINova alumni and two stipends to young professionals from partner institutions – Slovak Monument Board and Institute of Construction and Architecture SAS. Research reflected up-to-date problems and was dedicated to the following topics: Management of Historic Housing Stock with a Special Focus on Houses from the 1st Half of the 20th Century in Bratislava; Historic Trusses and the Adaptation of Attic Space for Living in the Conservation Reserve of SvätĂ˝ Jur; Local Resource Management – case study of SvätĂ˝ Jur. The department intends to continue in the support of professional capacity building in Slovakia through interconnecting the educational process with current problems from practice.

The applied research on low cost conservation techniques and technologies of historic ruins continues. The research is conducted along with the process of safeguarding the ruins of the medial castle of Uhrovec in central Slovakia. The project leader is the Foundation for Cultural Heritage Preservation in cooperation with the Faculty of Engineering STU and with AINova.
