Summer Schools

Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage

Our conservation students and lecturers participate regularly in conservation projects in various countries around Europe in the form of a summer school. Some of these projects are set up for a particular specialisation in conservation, and others are more interdisciplinary in nature. Often students from different conservation training programmes work together, which expands the network of the young conservation professionals. These collaborative projects are invaluable to learn, work and study on site, and, moreover, to advance the conservation profession itself.
