Welcome to International Academic Projects
International Academic Projects Ltd (IAP) was formed in London in 1989 as an international educational charity whose aims are to help promote education, training and research into conservation, archaeology, anthropology and other related fields. The activities of International Academic Projects include the organisation and management of short professional development courses, distance learning and consultancy.
This 3 day conference organised by IAP in association with Tate, will be a gathering of conservators, conservation and other scientists, and students of conservation to present and discuss the theory and practical use of gels in various branches of conservation (paintings, paper, wall paintings, textiles, museum objects etc).
The majority of the professional development courses in conservation and museum studies take place in Britain and Europe from June through August. The duration of these courses, led by international experts, varies between one and five days. The courses often address very particular types of knowledge or skills.
IAP also co-operates with institutions and colleagues abroad to provide training courses for museum, conservation and archaeological personnel. Courses outside of the UK have been held in Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Australia, the USA, Austria, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Ireland, Switzerland, France, Finland and Malta.
IAP is particularly interested in bringing some of its conservation training courses to the countries of Latin America. We are happy to discuss initiatives with interested parties.
