The NICAS Colloquium provides a platform to stay informed about the latest developments and results of all the research projects and activities that are taking place in the Atelier Building and in the context of the Netherlands Institute for Conservation, Art and Science (NICAS). The idea is to exchange information and expertise between the fields of science, conservation and art history.

The meetings are bi-weekly presenting two research lectures, each one 15 minutes long with 10 minutes discussion time. They are held on Thursdays 12:00-13:00 hrs in room B of the Atelier Building, Hobbemastraat 22 in Amsterdam, unless stated otherwise. The chair of the meeting circulates amongst PhD students and researchers.
