SINTEF Building and Infrastructure - the Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research of the Norwegian Institute for Technology - has its main quarters in Trondheim. In the field of cultural heritage management, SINTEF began in the spring of 2002 a vast research program on wood.

ASTRA Museum decided to select a Norwegian partner based on criteria such as experience, know how, availability and networking connections. Thus, ASTRA decided to train its own staff involved in conservation - restoration activities and to implement a modern, innovative approach in putting to good account the wooden ethnographic architecture.

For the Museum, the specific objective of the partnership consists of know-how transfer through a workshop - theory and hands-on - having as theme the modern / vs. / traditional wood conservation methods. Within this partnership program, SINTEF specialists will hold a 3 days seminar in the Open Air Museum through which they could operate the know-how transfer and draft a Good Practice Guide in preserving wooden architecture and artifacts, based on their own experience. Due to be organized in the autumn of 2010, the workshop is preceded by study visits made by SINTEF representatives in ASTRA Open Air Museum and by ASTRA specialists to peer Norwegian Museums.
