- to contribute to the assessment of applicability of nanomaterials for consolidation of plaster and stones;
- to took part in the analysis and assessment of the long-term behavior of treated artworks: consolidated plaster and stones, cleaned plasters and stones;
- to consisted in focusing on dissemination of nanomaterials;
- to assist to build end users network among museums, restoration public and private bodies and other partners.
