The UvA Conservation Department, the Rijksmuseum Conservation Studios and Researchers of the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands work together in the Ateliergebouw on the Museumplein in Amsterdam, coined the Centre of Excellence for conservation research.
The tripartite partners at the Ateliergebouw collaborate both in research and education and involve various areas of expertise to enhance the field of conservation. Together with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), the tripartite partners join in the Netherlands Institute for Conservation, Art and Science (NICAS). This institute stimulates innovative interdisciplinary research that unites conservation, science and art history. For more information see NICAS partner at the left.
