The next edition of the Young Professionals Forum is taking place on 1 - 2 July online. It will consist of two days of presentations, debates and networking, during which young professionals will have the chance to share and present their activities and research, and consider the direction of the profession and their careers in the light of the pandemic. They will also meet established professionals, professors and researchers who participate across the sessions.
You can read full details so far here - and a full programme will be announced shortly.
Registration is €35 for students, but we are delighted to announce that IIC will be sponsoring TEN free places for students and early career conservators including IIC members.
The IIC sponsored places will be open to students engaged in a university or learning programme for conservation, as well as early career practicing conservators currently engaged in either a public or a private capacity located in emerging economies. This reflects IIC's commitment to making opportunities for professional development more widely available across every region of the world.
Applications will be particularly welcome from individuals submitting an abstract to the Young Professionals Forum who are studying or working in the following regional group areas: South America and the Caribbean, Africa and South East Asia. All eligible applicants are subject to final review by the IIC in consultation with CCR and the Young Professionals Forum prior to the award notification being confirmed with successful applicants.
