LIFE works in strict collaboration with several institutions and research groups:

Due to the current impossibility to reach Umm al-Dabadib, LIFE established a partnership with Museo Egizio, Torino, thanks to which the team is carrying out experiments aiming at identifying efficient survey methods of archaeological finds and archaeological excavations.

Further information on the activities carried out on a selection of objects of the Museum’s collection and on the field, both at Saqqara and Deir al-Medina, can he found here.

All the activities in Egypt take place in collaboration and under the supervision of the Egyptian Ministry of the Antiquities. LIFE also collaborates with the Nature Conservation Sector of the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) for the study and the protection of the local environment.

The Environmental Unit of LIFE is Partner of Time Machine and works in connection with the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli (MANN) to the creation of a series of museum installations focusing on the human adaptation to the desert environment and on its agricultural exploitation.
