IIC Student & Emerging Conservator Conferences

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 live-streams allowing a wide, international range of online participation. 

We are delighted that the 7th edition of the Student and Emerging Conservator Conference S&ECC 2023, entitled 'Testing the Waters'  will be hosted in Amsterdam on 16 ,17 and 18 November 2023.

Further details  can be found on the conference website here. 

With the name “Testing the waters” the conference attempts to look at many of the issues that concern emerging conservators. Water represents both change and life, is present in many aspects of conservation and is a key component of our ecosystem. By using the common expression, ‘Testing the Waters’ as the title, we would like to treat the space of the conference as one in which to reflect and evaluate the first steps in a career in conservation.

The S&ECC 2023 conference has been kindly organised by conservation students at the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA) and will take place against the backdrop of the historic city of Amsterdam.

The conference is FREE to attend online for IIC Student and Early Career members. You can join IIC here if you would like to reserve your free place online.
