Brief description of your activity focus
ZAG (Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute) is an internationally recognized research organization in the field of construction.
Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
ZAG (Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute) is an internationally recognized research organization in the field of construction, with successful contribution in EU-funded projects (more than 40), with large network of European and Slovenian partners (excellent collaborations with Slovenian museums) and expertise in relevant areas for this proposal (http://www.zag.si/en/projects). We can offer help with the proposal development and digital support from microns to large scales, e.g. analysis of X-ray computer microtomography (XCT) of museum exhibition artifacts and preparation of building information models (BIM) for museums. ZAG has already finished some projects, where XCT and BIM activities were part of the research focus (building models and libraries, testing BIM and integrated building physics calculations and environmental footprint calculations, augmenting models with new parameters related to sensors readings etc.), in Q-Air and Innorenew BIM boost projects. We aim to join a consortium as a dissemination, exploitation and communication partner and a networking and coordinating partner for activities in Slovenia. We are strongly interdisciplinary and well connected; we have a holistic approach to solving challenges and aiming on cooperation based on mutual trust. We will be happy to collaborate as experienced project partner in terms of digitalization.

Reasons of linking BIM and XCT:
BIM can successfully address relationship between the building itself and the museum exhibits contained in it. Thus, BIM can be employed to manage building as well as exhibitions throughout the whole lifecycles of both: from planning, preparing /building /renovating /executing up to end of life of exhibition and the building. This brings different benefits: in terms of costs but also in terms of quality of executed works. Preparing BIM for the museums (M-BIM) means inserting elements as a BIM object including its geometric representation and physical/semantic data (dimensions, materials, weight, history etc.). We can also link different museum inventory elements and conservation databases for the museum management.

International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
ZAG is, together with the industry, involved in:
• several national (ARRS Applied projects co-founded by Slovenian Research Agency and industry sector,
• projects within the Slovenian Smart Specialisation strategy (S4) ( NMP-CEL.CYCLE and WOOLF), co-founded by EU
Structural Funds (ERDF) and Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and
• EU projects: 1) H2020 projects: InnoRenew CoE, CINDERELA, Assets4Rail, Wool2loop, EURAD, POCITYF, InnoWEE,
PaperChain and EnDurCrete etc.; 2) EIT Raw Materials projects: SPL-Cycle, RIS-RECOVER, FLAME, MIN-PET, RECOVER
ZAG is currently coordinating one H2020 project (CINDERELA, one, FRISSBE will start January 2021) and EIT Raw
Materials projects (SPL-Cycle, RIS-RECOVER, RIS-CuRE and RIS-ALiCE, RIS-RESTORE), as well as 2 ERA-Net projects (FLOW
and InnoCrossLam) and one LIFE project (HIDAQUA).
