Together with the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA), we are organizing an international Summer School to save energy for cultural heritage institutions.

Summer School C2PThe event is part of Climate2Preserv, a project that aims at developing a protocol that helps cultural institutions explore different energy saving strategies considering their collections, building, systems and more.

From 1 July to 12 July 2024, the course will accommodate a total of 20 participants, coming from 3-4 Belgian institutions and 6-7 international institutions (museums, galleries, archives and libraries). Each institution will send two participants, one person with a technical background and some experience in facilities, and one person with a background in conservation or collection care.

During the workshop, these teams will simulate a fast-paced walk through of the protocol that focuses on teamwork, gathering and understanding documentation, exploring energy saving strategies and decision-making and sharing information. Participants will do this through a mixture of theoretical courses, exploring tools, visiting existing case-studies and completing exercises based on actual case-study data.

At the end of the course, they get the time to plan their future steps within their own institutions.

The deadline for application is 14 January 2024
