Range of Services

Scientific Know-how

Communication, research and consolidation

These key terms best describe the cornerstones of the Center IZKK. They represent the interdisciplinary competence strung into one place.

As an educational platform, the Center bundles expert knowledge in cultural heritage preservation with practical experience. It has a solid base in its close neighbor Fraunhofer ISC. This link offers the singular chance to back up new impulse with many years of research competence.

The range of services provided in the areas of cultural heritage protection and environmental monitoring include indoor and outdoor climate measurements, e.g. for museum rooms, showcases, storage facilities or church windows as well as for the protection of buildings or extensive site assessment.

Also available are durability tests for coatings on glass, metal or glazing by accelerated weathering or simulation in climate chambers.

Another offer targets interdisciplinary exchange. Through easy access to the network Forschungsallianz Kulturerbe (Research Alliance for the Protection of Cultural Heritage) with partners such as the Leibniz Association, the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation »Preußischer Kulturbesitz« and 12 Fraunhofer Institutes, it is possible to find just the right partner of special competence.

The IZKK offers perfect conditions to profit from the accumulated expertise. The location is inviting and benefits from the long years of experience the Bronnbach Monastery has gained as a host of conferences and seminars.

Add hospitality to a place of culture and tradition, combine it with scientific research, technological know-how and a keen sense for the value of history in a sustainable future, and you will get the idea of the International Convention Center for Cultural Heritage Preservation IZKK.
