MoU between Institut für Naturwissenschaftliche Archäologie of the University of Tübingen and the Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archeological Science of The American School of Classical studies at Athens

The Institut für Naturwissenschaftliche Archäologie of the University of Tübingen and the Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archeological Science of The American School of Classical studies at Athens have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for encouraging academic cooperation through research and study in furtherance of the advancement of learning.

The Institut für Naturwissenschaftliche Archäologie of the University of Tübingen is a leading international institute for archaeological science and one of the few truly interdisciplinary institutions in Archaeology in Europe. Its six wings divisions in Archaeobotany, Archaeozoology, Palaeoanthropology (Physical Anthropology), Geoarchaeology, Archaeometry, and Archaeogenetics cover nearly all aspects of archaeological sciences and enjoy an international reputation as leaders in their respective fields. The research program of INA has a global reach with a diachronic perspective that includes high-profile projects in Greece and in the Mediterranean in general, as well as in Germany, Iran and South Africa. A strong emphasis is placed on cutting edge methodology across the INA subdisciplines, and the Institute enjoys state of the art equipment and laboratories, as well as extensive collection materials, in all its wings divisions. INA faculty are devoted to training young scholars, and the Institute offers a BA minor and MSc in Natural Science Archaeology, as well as a BA minor in Paleoanthropology.
Both the INA and the Wiener Laboratory share mutual research interests and will benefit from a closer collaboration. The partners will cooperate with each other in:

a) Encouraging research and educational visits by faculty and senior researchers from one institute to the other for the purpose of engaging in research or other- activities;

b) Facilitating the admission of qualified students from one institute to the other for participating in research;

c) Fostering the exchange of academic publications and scholarly information and

d) Promoting other academic activities that enhance the above-mentioned goals, such as organization of collaborative conferences, symposia and educational workshops.
