Call for posters
ENCoRE Conference on “Education and Research in Conservation-Restoration” 13. April 2016

In connection with the ENCoRE Conference on “Education and Research in Conservation-Restoration” - 13. April 2016 in Cambridge, UK, the Board of ENCoRE cordially invites students to present a poster on their research project. Submissions are restricted to students who are currently studying conservation-restoration at Masters (or 4th year Bachelors) level, at any European Higher Education (University level) Institution that is a member of ENCoRE.
The aim is to present ongoing students’ pro­jects, in order to demonstrate the huge variety of research and treatments undertaken by current students of the ENCoRE member insti­tutions.
Consideration will be given to posters that demonstrate both the highest quality of student research and/or practical treatments, and the learning outcomes achieved by European con­servation-restoration education programmes.
A maximum of 3 posters per member institu­tion can be submitted. The selection of these proposals as well as their ranking will have to be made by the teaching staff of the ENCoRE member institution, who has to submit them to ENCoRE at conference@encore-edu.org 

Depending on the number of submissions from member institutions and the space available, the board of ENCoRE will make the final selec­tion (at least 1 poster per school) for posters to be presented at the conference.
All posters selected by their Institution will be published in the ENCoRE / CeROArt postprints of the conference, after the approval of the review committee.

Further prerequisites:
  • The posters must be written in English.
  • Abstracts must be submitted before 15. February 2016, with a limit of 500 words.
  • Posters should measure 100 x 70 cm and should not be mounted.
  • Printing and delivery will be the responsibility of the author(s)

The presentations and posters from the Conference “Teaching Conservation-Restoration“ 26 March 2014, Liège are available at the CeROArtwebsite


Abstracts from The Ulrich Schiessl PhD Colloquium Dresden (formerly: Oranienbaum Colloquium) Monday 24. – Tuesday 25.11.2014 can be found in e-newsletter 5/2014


Conservation-Restoration education and the development of the profession

René Hoppenbrouwers from the board of ENCoRE has given a paper in CeROArt

ENCoRE is a network organisation of higher educational institutions in the field of conservation - restoration.

A main objective of ENCoRE is to promote research and education in the field of conservation and restoration of cultural heritage.

ENCoRE was founded in 1997 with the main objective to promote research and education in the field of cultural heritage, based on the directions and recommendations given in the Professional Guidelines of the European Confederation of Conservator-Restorers Organisation E.C.C.O. and the Document of Pavia of October 1997. Currently ENCoRE has 41 full members and 1 associate members from among the leading conservation-restoration study programmes in Europe. In addition, 26 leading institutions and organisations working in the field of cultural heritage protection and research are partners of the network.
