The Professor of the Chair of Heritage and Technology (H&T) will focus primarily on the analysis, diagnosis, technical (re)design of, and interventions in existing buildings and structures. Its domain will be the consolidation, conservation, maintenance and revitalisation of existing structures, incorporating knowledge of building history and the built heritage, material sciences, structural mechanics and building physics.
The chairholder will develop and convey knowledge, theory, methodology, process and practice of technical interventions in heritage structures. In its work, the Chair needs to face an international challenge: students, Dutch and non-Dutch alike, will be educated for an international practice, and research is undertaken with an international dimension; the Chair needs to take this into consideration.
The chairholder of H&T is expected to advance the area of building technology in relation to heritage, responding to urgent issues in science and society (design for sustainability, for circularity, conservation and maintenance), and to demands from international heritage institutions.
