Specially for the Mataha-expedition, Ghent University established a partnership with the NRIAG to corporate the geophysic scanning at Hawara. Ghent University has bundled a wide range of international partnerships, in which the cooperation with the NRIAG is framed. The Ghent University started the involvement in the geophysical survey to contribute to the preservation of the antiquities at Hawara and to support the contemporary art & science project by Louis De Cordier, framing in the new cross-bordering approach of the Ghent University Kunst-Zicht unit, directed by curator Guy Bovyn (Ghent University Department of Communication, curator Contemporary Art Ghent University; coordinator of the postgraduate program 'Exhibition and Conservation of Contemporary Art').
