YOUNG PROFESSIONALS FORUM 2021 - call for abstracts

Posted on Thu, 04/08/2021 - 17:32

The Young Professionals Forum is a digital event designed to create new synergies, share research, experiences and ideas, and meet with leading international specialists in the sector.

This year it will take place on 1-2 July 2021 and will involve international young professionals working in the field of conservation, art history and diagnostics applied to cultural heritage. The Forum will consist of two intense days of presentations organised in 4 sessions, each one dedicated to a crucial topic for the conservation and transmission of cultural heritage. The different sessions, organised in collaboration with internationally renowned research institutions (IIC, CNR, ICOM, ICCROM and UniTo), will host a series of papers selected through the call for abstracts. The selected candidates will have the opportunity to present their contribution and publish it in the Forum Proceedings. There will also be a winner among the candidates who will have the opportunity to gain professional experience at the CCR!

The deadline for the call for abstracts is 9th May 2021.

Another important initiative that started in February is the Young Professionals Community. A very wide network of young professionals in the field of Cultural Heritage gathered around the Forum and, eager to enhance this valuable resource, we decided to create a digital hub (closed group Linkedin) where all the participants in the Forum can get to know each other and exchange ideas and perspectives. There will also be a series of training and deepening moments created ad hoc for community members. You are invited to join us to strengthen the Forum's network and share your vision with young professionals!
