Hornemann Institut of the HAWK

Hornemann Institut of the HAWK

Institute of the University of Applied Sciences und Arts

The primary objective of the Hornemann Institute is to promote the worldwide transfer of knowledge in the field of cultural heritage conservation and the further training of restorers and monument conservators.

The Hornemann Institute has been working as a scientific service institution in the field of cultural heritage conservation since 1998. Since 1.9.2003 it has been an institute of the HAWK University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hildesheim/Holzminden/Göttingen.

The Hornemann Institute provides information and offers in the field of conservation and restoration:
  • E-Publications
    The Institute's free online databases with university papers, conference reports, essays, films, posters and project documentation (especially from the German Federal Environmental Foundation DBU) offer timely publication and easy research. In cooperation with the Technical Information Library Hannover (TIB), Digital Object Identifiers are assigned for important publications. These Digital Object Identifiers ensure that the publications are always traceable and are accepted by many scientific journals as source references. The institute also maintains "Salzwiki", a wiki for experts on the subject of salts and damage caused by salts.
  • E-Learning
    The Hornemann Institute of the HAWK has been developing e-learning courses in the field of cultural heritage conservation in cooperation with HAWK lecturers for 20 years now. These are richly illustrated internet courses with learning controls, glossary, literature references and web links. All participants can contact the tutor at the institute or the authors via e-mail or telephone to clarify questions about the learning material and practical implementation.
    Upon successful completion, participants receive a qualified certificate. It is possible to credit some courses towards the studies at the Faculty of Building and Conservation. In some cases additional workshops are held.
  • Events
    Regular specialist conferences and a public lecture series serve to bring the latest research results into the classroom as well as to the interested public.
  • Publication series
    The publication series comprises 19 books, especially conference proceedings on the preservation of cultural heritage.

The Hornemann Institute works in close cooperation with UNESCO, but is not bound by the list of world cultural heritage sites published by the World Heritage Centre. Since 2001 the Hornemann Institute has been a partner of ENCoRE (European Network for Conservation-Restoration Education). Since 2009 the institute is a member of the "German Initiative for Network Information". (DINI).
