We are pleased to announce the first conference on conservation and digitization of cultural heritage objects in Poland.

The conference will be conducted to promote EEA and Norway grants through the Project "Shipwreck Conservation Centre with Studio Warehouse in Tczew – construction of new cultural infrastructure of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk" within the Programme "Conservation and revitalization of cultural heritage". Supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants and co-financed by the Polish funds.

The international conference will gather conservators, research scientists and world-class specialists in conservation and digitization to enable the exchange of knowledge, experience and good practices in these areas. It will be also an opportunity to improve cooperation between National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk, Norwegian Maritime Museum in Oslo and the UiO: Museum of Cultural History which are involved in the project.
