The Young Professionals Forum will now be run as a purely digital event, completely free to participate (no fee is required).

YPF aims to create a space of sharing, open to comparison and innovation through the circulation of ideas and good practices, with the hope of strengthening the connection between institutions and professionals who are engaged in different ways in the conservation of cultural heritage.

The YPF will be structured in 4 sessions, each one focused on a crucial issue for the conservation and transmission of cultural heritage. Research institutes of international importance (IIC, CNR, ICOM and University of Turin) will be involved as moderators, Scientific Committee and jury.

The four sessions’ subjects will be:

1. Conservation ethics and practice
2. Diagnostics and technologies applied to conservation
3. Museum professions
4. History of conservation

For each session a prize of 1,000 € will also be awarded to the most significant contribution in terms of quality of content, originality and effectiveness of communication. All selected candidates will have the opportunity to publish an article about their project in the 2020 Forum proceedings.
