Organization and funding

The Glyptotek heads the project through senior researcher in classical archaeology Cecilie Brøns. The museum provides the research objects, project administration and coordination, as well as classical archaeological and technical conservation expertise. Besides the project director, the staff consists of senior scientist Jens Stenger and postdoctoral researcher Tuuli Kasso.

As for funding, core staff were paid by the museum until 2011. From then on, and until May 31st, 2013 and again from 2014 to 2017, and from 2018 until 2023 the project was financed by generous grants from the Carlsberg Foundation.
Support was also given in 2009 and 2010 by the Kirsten and Freddy Johansen Foundation, for the acquisition of high-end optical and digital microscopes and in 2020 for the acquistion of new MSI equipment for the newly established laboratory.
