CAPuS Project

Supported via the Key Action 2 (Knowledge Alliances) of the Erasmus+ Programme, Conservation of Art in Public Spaces (CAPuS) brings together higher education institutions, industry, research centers, NGOs and public bodies to develop guidelines and protocols for the protection and conservation of contemporary public art, and to develop training opportunities for students and professional conservators alike.

The three-year project includes investigation into the history of the artworks (artist interviews included), characterization of materials and degradation processes, development of methods and materials for conservation, introduction of an academic course, development of a distance learning module, and the creation of a pilot-course for professional conservators.
