The Fraunhofer Development Center for X-ray Technology EZRT, the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (GNM) and the Chair of X-ray Microscopy (LRM) at Julius-Maximilians-Universität in Würzburg have joined forces: since November 2014, the institutions have been collaborating on the MUSICES project, funded for three years by the German Research Foundation (DFG) with the objective of developing guidelines and procedural instructions for the three-dimensional computed tomography of musical instruments. The goal is to create worldwide standards that ensure comparable image quality.
