List of participants
It is imperative that the project leader (researcher, curatorial manager, doctoral student, master, external, etc.) is the one who carries out the data analysis work and the research work (or the museum exploitation) that results from it. (thus ensuring optimum demand for surface acquisition specificities).
Information on Collaborators
Last name (s), first name (s), affiliation (s) of the collaborator (s) of the project.
Summary of the scientific project for this request (200 words maximum)
The summary may, for selected projects, be posted on the website of the platform and in the dissemination documents produced by the platform.
Contributions of the method (200 words maximum)
Details on the interests of surface analysis for your project? Which structures do you want to highlight (area of interest)? What types of post-processing analysis will be used?
Project framework (200 words maximum)
Explanations on the broader framework in which the project fits (Master, Thesis, funded research program (ANR, ERC, PICS, etc.), preventive conservation, exhibition, restoration, etc.).
Material and methods (500 words maximum, indicate the original collection of the specimens and, if applicable, the MNHN collection number)
Details of the material to be analyzed (number and size of specimens *, provide photographs *), if possible estimate of technical requirements (number of scans or any known acquisition parameters, refer to
). An exhaustive description of the study material is essential to the choice of the best parameters of surface analysis and to the estimation of the time of digitization and the cost of the service. For MNHN specimens, the inventory number is required.

Catalog number inside the chosen collection
Check and add
The specimen is already selected
Inventory number is correct
The inventory number does not correspond to a computerized specimen
You will not be able to submit your project if the inventory number is wrong or does not exist (please contact the relevant curatorial manager if the number is not valid). Examples: HA then D-2, HA then D-1-bis
Specimens external to the MNHN
Full inventory number
The specimen is already selected
No checks are made for these inventory numbers
Detailed contact details of the curatorial manager or specimen manager (s) concerned
Detailed contact information of the person for the billing of the analysis.
Desired period for the surface analysis (and possibly unavailabilities).
Attach a file
Please attach a single file (preferably in pdf format, maximum size 64 MB) containing photographs of the specimen(s) to be digitized in all relevant orientations; and possibly any other complementary information (previous experiences, methodologies used, problems related to the handling of the object, etc.).
Agreement and sending
Without acceptance of the conditions you can not send your request.
I have taken note of the information contained in the document "présentation et modalités de fonctionnement" of the MH-2D/3D platform of the MNHN. I undertake to respect all the operating rules of the platform and those of the MNHN Collections Directorate. And I especially know that my project will be public which will not remove the confidentiality attached to possible non-public specimens.
