The Higher School of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Assets has a long tradition of seeking international agreements to improve the situation of conservation-restoration education at a global level.
For many years, the School has participated in numerous forums in which the future of the profession is debated at an international level and, with it, the present and future of the education of conservators-restorers.
Thus, for example, the ESCRBC was the first Spanish educational institution to join the European Network for Conservation and Restoration Education (ENCoRE), where we have always defended the need to create a common European framework to serve as a reference for the training of conservation-restoration professionals that necessarily includes a sufficient teaching load in specific subjects in this field.
On the other hand, the ESCRBC has participated over the last decades in several international projects, such as the elaboration of a multilingual glossary of terms used in conservation-restoration, a multiannual project in which it collaborated with the Secco Suardo Foundation (Italy), among other prestigious European institutions.
The ESCRBC has the Carta Erasmus (Erasmus Charter) and participates in the Erasmus+ Program by sending and hosting students and staff from its own and numerous European educational institutions.
In addition, ESCRBC has signed a bilateral agreement with the Scuola Universitaria Professionale della Svizzera Italiana (SUPSI) for the mobility of students and staff of both institutions within the SEMP program (Students Exchange Program Svizzera/Switzerland). This program is organized and financed by the Swiss state.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that the ESCRBC has a collaboration agreement with the Vatican Museums that also facilitates the mobility of students for internships in the facilities of the aforementioned institution.
