The School of Conservation aims to maintain and enhance its collaboration with the business world in terms of research and development. We work in several different formats and with a variety of stakeholders: with public and private companies, high schools and schools, and with many international partners, including a number of networks.
One network is ENCoRE, which is a network of recognised academic conservation programmes in Europe. Its aim is to promote teacher and student mobility, development and collaboration in research and education in the area of the conservation of objects of cultural and natural heritage. The network currently has 38 members, representing the leading conservation programmes in Europe. ENCoRE also has partnerships with 29 leading institutions and organisations.
Other networks are: CATS, a research partnership between the National Museum of Denmark, the Danish National Gallery and the School of Conservation, in which technical analyses and art history generate new knowledge (technical art history); and “IAQ”, an international network focusing on air quality, and conducting research into better storage environment for objects of cultural and natural heritage in museums and archives.
