The Breuckmann Award 2016: … and the winner is…!

15 November 2016 - Erica Nocerino is the winner of the Breuckmann Award 2016. Again in the third call for proposals, numerous junior scientists with their elaborate 3D project ideas have applied for the Award. Finally, the five-member jury selected Erica Nocerino’s ‚3D MASTER‘ as this year’s winning project.

Capturing small and medium-sized artifacts requires not only fast scanning with high accuracy, but also the simultaneous recording of the high-resolution object texture – an ideal task for the SmartScan. In addition, Erica Nocerino aims at working out general rules and best practice methods with the 3D data to facilitate the mass digitalization in the field of arts and cultural heritage.

For her project, Erica Nocerino will be receiving a tuition with a SmartScan. We will provide this mobile, highly precise fringe projection scanner for her work in various museums in Sicily. The cash price to the amount of € 1,000 will help to cover part of her project expenses. We will keep you informed about the development of the project on our website.

Given the numerous high-quality applications submitted to the Breuckmann Award, the jury has decided to award an additional special prize again. This time, we will support ‚Tracking transport damages with 3D digitization‘ as subproject of Carolin Heinemanns studies about the transport control of original paintings.

In this third edition of the Breuckmann Award, the jurors were excited by the elaborate project proposals for 3D scanning projects. Dr. Dirk Rieke-Zapp, AICON Key Account Manager for Arts and Culture, explains: “The increased 3D digitization of historical objects is gaining more and more importance for research, for documentation and for museum exhibitions. We are happy to support this development with the AICON 3D Scanners and the Breuckmann Award.”
