What is the concept of AGATO?

The overall concept for AGATO is shown in the diagram below. It consists of 3 main parts: user´s input, knowledge base query and output. In the first part, users will provide input to characterise their mixed-media objects and the environment in which they are kept. This input will then be used to search the knowledge base for the relevant information on material-environment and material-material interactions that can possibly damage the object. 'Risk warnings' concerning these potentially harmful interactions for the object at hand, together with recommendations to mitigate each risk that has been identified, will be provided as outputs to the user.
