CNCI Conservation & Collection Care Group

The CNCI Conservation & Collection Care Group are delighted to invite you to attend a one-day seminar exploring how passive and low energy controls can be used to support a sustainable museum environment. Through a series of case studies and shared experiences it will examine the possibilities of providing passive preservation through integrated architecture and engineering approaches.

Targeted at professionals responsible for collection care, it aims to empower attendees with the knowledge to enable them to advocate for passive controls and understand the practical implications of this approach.
