Strategic directions

ICCROM has identified a series of strategic directions for the organization. In pursuing these strategies in our own work, we aim to influence the future development of conservation as a whole. They are divided into three main areas; training, research, and communication, information, and advice, with their corresponding objectives.


  • to ensure the quality and relevance of ICCROM training


  • to reintegrate and re-emphasize the important role of materials science, scientific methodologies, and conservation science in ICCROM’s programmes and activities;
  • to ensure that ICCROM continues to take an interdisciplinary approach and integrate the results of research in conservation-related fields.

Communication, information, and advice

  • to ensure that ICCROM remains a reliable and up-to-date source of information and advice for Member States.
