About our visiting scientists and their research projects
Nineteen partner institutions from 10 European countries, including the Swedish Museum of Natural History (NRM), form SYNTHESYS. They offer coordinated access to their natural history collections, analytical facilities and libraries, including qualified support from in-house researchers and curators.
The institutions also co-operate in Network activities aiming to improve the management, preservation and digital accessibility of their collections. A Joint research activity will develop non-invasive tools for optimal extraction of ancient and more modern DNA from natural history specimens.
SYNTHESYS was initiated by CETAF and is funded by the European Community's Research Infrastructure Activity under the FP7 “Capacities" scheme. It runs over four years until 2013 and is coordinated by The Natural History Museum in London. Please visit SYNTHESYS main web page for more information (see link above).
