The two sides will collaborate in research, talent training and other matters related to the protection of soil in humid environments, monitoring of soil, and digital reform that promotes the technological innovation capability of ruins soil protection.
Guo Qinglin, deputy director of Dunhuang Academy, said that this collaboration is important as the Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City is easily affected by humidity, which causes problems such as water seepage and cracking.
The two sides will also work together to construct a technology research center, carry out relic protection experiments, develop cultural relics protection technologies and share theoretical methods.
"For the protection of soil sites in ruins environments, there is no mature solution in the world currently. Everyone is still exploring," said Sun Haibo, director of the Monitoring and Management Center of Hangzhou Liangzhu Archaeological Site Administrative District.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization World Heritage Committee designated China's Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City as a World Heritage Site on July 6, 2019.
