The participants will meet at a series of special tailor-made lectures, meet their colleagues from abroad, and collaborate on common tasks. The programme will include practical training, with case studies in international protection of historical and artistic objects, and the participants will have the opportunity to visit and learn at excavation sites (for example, Býčí skála) and in artistic collections (for example, Archbishop ́s Château in Kroměříž, National Gallery Prague) in the Czech Republic.
