Alumni Network Conservation and Restoration

The Alumni Network Conservation and Restoration is for alumni of the two-year Master and the successive two-year Advanced Professional Programme in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage at the UvA. In addition, alumni of the higher vocational programme at ICN and the five-year postgraduate programme at SRAL are welcome to join.


The joint Master and Post-Master programme Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage was officially founded in 2005 as result of merging the former professional master at the ICN, now RCE, and the post-graduate programme at the SRAL. Since then, the number of alumni has steadily grown and an academic conservation community has been established. Alumni have a broad variety of backgrounds and nationalities and have found their positions worldwide. The Alumni Network Conservation and Restoration aims to facilitate contact in order to stay connected and to consolidate the conservation and restoration network between alumni and the programme, the students, and current and former lecturers.


Join the network and enjoy the benefits of a membership of the UvA Alumni Association (AUV) and events specifically organised by and for members of the Alumni Network Conservation and Restoration. You receive an AUV card, which offers exclusive services and discounts at university facilities and cultural partners in Amsterdam.
