Scientists from a range of disciplines – chemists, physicists, material scientists, engineers, archaeologists, digital humanists, conservators, literary scholars, historians and art historians, to name a few - collaborate in the new multidisciplinary field of heritage science. Integrating and sharing data across these fields demonstrates the need for building upon existing data and metadata standards – already developed in each scientific discipline - contributing to, reusing and connecting existing technologies rather than creating new semantic structures, authority tables and linked data. 

A task within SSHOC is examining how existing and future research within heritage science can use, contribute to, and be integrated within EOSC.
