INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONSERVATION OF HISTORIC AND ARTISTIC WORKS (IIC)

IIC's mission


IIC is an independent international organisation supported by individual and institutional members. It serves as a forum for communication among professionals with responsibility for the preservation of cultural heritage. It advances knowledge, practice and standards for the conservation of historic and artistic works through its publications and conferences. It promotes professional excellence and public awareness through its awards and scholarships.

IIC Student & Emerging Conservator Conferences


IIC's Student & Emerging Conservator Conference series, instigated in 2011, is aimed at helping recent graduates and those still studying conservation to develop their future planning and gain valuable career information and advice from those who have already trodden that path. The conferences, with studio visits, interactive 'round table' presentations and social events offer invaluable networking opportunities with webcasts allowing a wide, international range of participation.

 

The 2011 Conference was held in London, the 2013 Conference in Copenhagen and the 2015 Conference in Warsaw.
