PhD Research

Obtaining a PhD in conservation is a relatively new phenomenon, as the academic discipline is still young.

European Network for Conservation-Restoration Education

According to the 2001 Clarification Paper of the European Network for Conservation-Restoration Education (ENCoRE), doctoral studies in conservation and restoration encompass basic research, applied research, experimental development, or a combination of these. This can be on fundamental research into the artmaking processes, on innovative conservation treatment methods, material deterioration processes, or on theory and history of conservation.
