Let’s be actors in conservation-restoration research, 2022
11th Professional Days of Conservation and Restoration, organized by videoconference by the Directorate General of Heritage and Architecture in partnership with the City of Architecture and Heritage and the National Heritage Institute, Paris, 31 March and 1 April 2022.
The 11th Professional Days aimed to put heritage professionals at the heart of a research program in the field of conservation and restoration.
How to integrate all heritage professionals in a research pathway? How to access research results? How to better disseminate all research activity?
These questions have given rise to feedback in an interdisciplinary presentation.
Round-table discussions and communications allowed stakeholders from all fields of heritage (archives, libraries, museums, archaeology, historical monuments and natural heritage), to exchange on the different modes of financing research and innovation, on the need to share a common language. Case studies have presented research applied to preventive conservation, to ensure the monitoring of the state of conservation, to preserve the impossible materials or the investigations essential for a good decision-making. Finally, the issue of the management of scientific data, their conservation and dissemination was discussed
Organised by the Directorate-General for Heritage and Architecture of the Ministry of Culture, in partnership with the Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine and the National Heritage Institute, these 11e Professional Conservation-Restoration Days brought together about thirty speakers, restaurateurs, curators, researchers in conservation sciences and information sciences, in a videoconference, who reported on their projects and achievements.
