The Rathgen Research Laboratory is the leading institution for
conservation science, art technology and archaeometry at the
National Museums in Berlin. It carries out investigations on a broad
variety of materials within the museum environment and focuses its
research on scientific issues concerning the care of monuments and
archaeological sites.

It carries forward the tradition of the world's oldest scientific
museum laboratory, the Chemical Laboratory of the Royal Museums in
Berlin, which was founded on April 1 and bears the name of its first
director, Friedrich Rathgen.

It is the mission of the Friends of Rathgen (Forderkreis des
Rathgen-Forschungslabors e.V.) to support the work of the Rathgen
Research Laboratory in various ways, among others by supporting
research projects of young professionals in heritage science. To
this end, the Rathgen Heritage Science Scholarships have been
established in 2009.

The Rathgen Heritage Science Scholarship enables young professionals
to undertake a project at the laboratory within 1-3 month duration.
The topic is chosen by the applicant. Successful applicants will
