I don’t discuss this often in here, but I used to work for The Heritage Laboratory (LaPa), a medium-sized research lab in Santiago de Compostela that was part of a larger institute that, in turn, belongs to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Yes, that is right, I used to. As of today, The Heritage Laboratory exists no more.
The good news is that The Heritage Laboratory has been transformed into a full-fledged institute with its own identity. We have outgrown ourselves out of being a lab within an institute, and we have become one. We are now the Institute of Heritage Sciences, usually abbreviated as Incipit.
This is a time of fast and exciting change with lots of opportunities. If you are interested in knowing more, visit our web site on www.incipit.csic.es or drop me an email anytime.
