ArcTron 3D is at full partner in the Initial Training Network for digital Cultural Heritage (ITN-DCH) Project.

Cultural Heritage is a most important element of Europe and contributes decisively to the formation of a cultural European identity. Besides that it is part of the most important fortune to steer Europe's social and economic development. ITN-DCH aimed for the first time worldwide to bring top universities, research institutes, industry, KMUs, preservation of historical monuments authorities, museums, culture pressure groups and final users together to train the next generation of researchers in the area of the Digital Cultural Heritage.

In accordance with the specialization of ArcTron 3D one of the projects main emphases is the intelligent three-dimensional recording, visualization, modelling and presentation of the Cultural Heritage with composite 3D technologies in corresponding developments and education concepts.

The tasks of the Early Stage Researcher at ArcTron3D covers the area of Laser Scanning, Structured Light Scanning and Photogrammetry. Since February 2015 Diego Bellido Castañeda represents the ITN-DCH at ArcTron. He received his BA from the University of Santiago de Compostela and his Master in Geodesy and Cartography Engineering of the University of Madrid.


ITN-DCH community is glad to announce the project’s final conference, which will take place in Olimje (Slovenia) from 23rd to 25th of May 2017.

The conference aims to encourage the discussion between young researchers, scientists and experts in the area of digital applications for the analysis of cultural heritage object/practices, as well as exchange of ideas and opinions.

The conference provides the perfect platform for examining the new research opportunities and professional collaborations. Furthermore, it will support the connection between different disciplines and the enhancement of young researchers' networks.
