WHAT WE DO
At the intersection of art and science, heritage and legacy, Conservation Sciences is an international consultancy that provides clients with interdisciplinary science to evaluate, diagnose, and preserve their cultural heritage.
Our mission is to investigate, understand, preserve works of art, architecture, archives and archaeology through sound science, education, training, and collaborations with a network of highly-qualified conservation professionals around the world.
