Partners of the LBI ArchPro

The LBI and its scientific network of international partners

An integral and important part of the LBI ArchPro are its thirteen European partner organizations, covering academic institutes, national archaeological and geophysical research departments, governmental cultural heritage agencies as well as commercial archaeological prospection service providers and  SMEs.

Representing a diverse range of individual interests. In particular these are the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU), the Province of Lower Austria (NoeL), the Swedish History Museums (SHMM), the Roman-Germanic Central  Museum in Mainz - Germany (RGZM), the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) with the Institute for Computer Graphics and Algorithms and the Institute for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, the University of Vienna (Uni Vienna) with the Vienna Institute for Archaeological Science (VIAS) and the Institute of Prehistoric and Historical Archaeology (UHA), Vestfold Fylkeskommune (Vfk), the University of Birmingham, Airborne Technologies (ABT), 7reasons Medien GmbH (7reasons), the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) with the Institute for the Study of Ancient Culture (IKAnt) and the Institute for Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA), the Austrian Archaeological Institute (ÖAI) and the Department of Geophysics at the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG). All partners are directly involved in the research programme, primarily through involvement in the corresponding national case studies.






For several case studies and specific research questions and developments appropriate cooperations have been established. Cooperation agreements exist with the University of Bradford (UNI Bradford), the University of Lund (UNI Lund), the University of Ghent (OrBit), The Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), MALÅ Geoscience AB (MALÅ), Riegl Laser Measurement Systems GmbH (Riegl), pico Envirotec (Pico), Eastern Atlas GmbH & Co. KG (EAL), GeoCarta (GeoCarta), Geo Experts Research and Planning GmbH (GeoEx), the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU), Wikitude GmbH (Wikitude), Interspot Film GmbH (Interspot), the Höhere Technische Lehranstalt Steyr (HTL Steyr), the Schallaburg Kulturbetriebsges.m.b.H, the Centre for Baltic and Scandinavian Archaeology (Foundation of the Schleswig-Holstein State Museums at Schloss Gottorf), the Croatian Conservation Institute - Dept. for Underwater Archaeology, the Institute of Archaeology Belgrade and the Holstebro Museum (DK)  .

While the main interest for some partners lies in generating scientific output in the form of joint publications, others are be more interested in the direct benefits derived from the development of efficient hardware and software solutions for large-scale archaeological prospection, applicable to research or rescue archaeology. Of common interest for all partners are successfully executed case studies that produce valuable new scientific data and information on important and possibly endangered archaeological heritage hidden in the ground. At the same time, the generated results can be used to demonstrate the potential of the new methods and the novel landscape archaeological (prospection) approach.
