Annual Award for Science 2016 in the events category
The Niguliste Museum of the Art Museum of Estonia carried out the project “Rode Altarpiece in Close-up” (2013–2016), which was centred around the technical examination and conservation of the retable (1478–1481) of the high altar of Saint Nicholas’ Church in Tallinn, crafted in the workshop of the master Hermen Rode of Lübeck. What was significant about the project was the inclusion of imaging and information technology solutions, as well as scientific studies, comprehensive documentation and the mapping of information. The focus was on the popularisation of science through educational programmes, workshops and multimedia solutions presenting the study results (website, blog, interactive multimedia programme, Science Web and much more).
