International Convention Center for Cultural Heritage Preservation IZKK

Works of art and historical monuments bear witness to the past history of a region or a country. They serve as an open book on the culture of our ancestors living in different times. The task of preserving this rich heritage for future generations is not only of regional but of vital international interest.
Founded on the initiative of the Fraunhofer ISC in Würzburg with the support of the Main-Tauber regional administration, the International Convention Center for Cultural Heritage Preservation IZKK (Internationales Zentrum fuer Kulturgueterschutz und Konservierungsforschung) took up this task in early 2008.

Its mission is to disseminate information on the latest advances in conservation research and to provide an educational platform. Seminars, training courses and expert conferences held at the IZKK address an international audience from universities, research institutions, museums, and government agencies charged with the protection of cultural heritage.
