• The 18th International Course on Wood Conservation Technology

    Published at September 6, 2017 - News

    The ICWCT was initiated as a response to a recommendation at UNESCO’s General Conference in 1980, and has been organized in Norway every second year since 1984. It is directed towards professionals who have been working for some years within the field of wood conservation. The ICWCT covers a wide range of interdisciplinary topics relating to both buildings and objects made of wood. Theoretical and practical aspects of wood conservation are given equal consideration. Interesting cultural heritage sites constructed in wood will be visited during the course.

    For the first time, the ICWCT 2018 course programme will be divided into two main components:

    1. A 5-week compulsory on-line introductory section where participants will have access to a digital platform from their respective home countries. Allow for at least 5 hours per week of interactive preparatory study with various exercises and papers to be submitted.
    2. A 4-week full-time workshop in Oslo. The workshop includes lectures, practical conservation exercises, field studies, museum visits and excursions.

    The course is divided in two main parts:
    On-line distance learning: 9 April – 11 May 2018
    Workshop in Oslo: 4 – 29 June 2018

    Applications should reach ICCROM by 30 September 2017 to ensure inclusion in our selection process.
