Organisation profile

The School of Conservation educates conservators and conducts research, which contributes to the preservation of cultural heritage. We aim to be one of the leading schools of conservation in the world. Through research and collaboration with other conservation programmes and conservation institutions we enhance and promote the subject both nationally and internationally. The School of Conservation aims to be a dynamic partner in the preservation of our global cultural heritage. Conservation is like surgery: a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical craft.

The School of Conservation is one of KADK’S six institutes. Hence its title: the Institute of Conservation.
