The International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property
The International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) is an intergovernmental organization created to promote the conservation of all forms of cultural heritage, in every region of the world. Its mission is to provide Member States with the best tools, knowledge, skills and enabling environment to preserve their cultural heritage in all of its forms, for the benefit of all people. Through its work, ICCROM is contributing to the environmental, social and economic sustainability of communities.
Working on the front lines of conservation, nationally and internationally, and with institutions and professionals on the ground, ICCROM commits to:
- Studying and promoting cultural heritage conservation;
- Mobilizing and coordinating expertise to address critical issues of conservation;
- Providing the training and research tools for implementation to strengthen the professional community.
