Department of Conservation and Restoration

The Department of Conservation and Restoration (DCR) of the NOVA School of Science and Technology has the mission of teaching and research in order to contribute to a better conservation and heritage enjoyment, especially the valuable and almost ancient Portuguese heritage in urgent need to preserve for future generations.

Laboratories and properly equipped workshops allow quality research in conservation science and its applications to restoration. A network of national and international collaborations enables the development of exciting projects, of recognized quality, and creates unique opportunities for master stages and career opportunities.

DCR believes that the passion for research and enthusiasm for heritage conservation and restoration should be shared with their students. So in the next academic year, from the 2nd Semester onwards, students will be invited to choose a laboratory / workshop and join their team to participate in the activities of day-to-day as well as in the ongoing innovative projects. They will formulate new ideas, knowing how to acquire and process new data, challenge / question the boundaries of common sense, discover things never before thought and apply them to better conserve, restore and enjoy the works of art!
