15 PhD positions within Marie Curie Innovative Training Network project

The NACCA programme, coordinated by Prof. Renée van de Vall, is a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network project, funded by the European Union. In total, 15 PhD projects are offered in the programme, each investigating different, as yet under-explored aspects of contemporary art conservation. The PhD positions for these projects are now open for application.

A significant part of European cultural heritage, modern and contemporary art, runs a great risk of getting lost for future generations, because it is particularly difficult to preserve. Proper care requires resolving fundamental questions concerning the identity, values and authenticity of modern and contemporary artworks and the consequences for their conservation, rethinking historically grown professional distinctions as those between the curator and the conservator, re-organizing the institutional ecosystem, and establishing frameworks for international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral research and training collaboration.

The research and training programme New Approaches in the Conservation of Contemporary Art (NACCA) aims at meeting these demands by educating a new generation of professional curators, conservators and academic researchers who are properly equipped to face these challenges. The programme is designed by experts working in museums, heritage organisations and universities that have a profound experience in the field of contemporary art conservation and conservation research. It consists of a research and a training part, which are closely connected and mutually inform each other. It will focus on the development of a reflective professional attitude, which is a pre-requisite in the increasingly complex and collaborative field of contemporary art conservation.

The NACCA programme, coordinated by Maastricht University, is a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network project, funded by the European Union. In total, 15 PhD projects are part of the programme, each investigating different, as yet under-explored aspects of contemporary art conservation.

In the framework of the Marie Curie ITN project NACCA, the beneficiaries of this project are now recruiting a total of 15 PhD researchers. Researchers will be located in The Netherlands (Maastricht University, University of Amsterdam), Germany (Cologne University of Applied Sciences), United Kingdom (University of Glasgow, Tate), Italy (Museo delle Culture Milan, University of Roma III), Portugal (NOVA University Lisbon, University of Porto) and Poland (Faculty of Conservation, Academy of Fine Arts Warsaw).
