CoCARe PhD and Postdoc Network

CoCARe is an interdisciplinary PhD and Postdoc Network for Conservation of Contemporary Art Research. The network brings together international researchers in the humanities, social sciences, conservation science, and other related areas. Its main goal is to encourage and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise among early and mid-career researchers in the field of conservation of contemporary art. The network is associated to INCCA and has it's own group page within the INCCA website where you can find information on finished and upcoming PhD and Postdoc research and come into contact with fellow members. Members also meet face-to-face on occasion to share experiences.

The PhD & postdoctoral research-network was established on June 10, 2010 during the Contemporary Art: Who Cares? symposium in Amsterdam. Currently the network consists of 72 members from over 30 organisations in 14 countries. Its main goal is to encourage and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise among early and mid-career researchers in the field of conservation of contemporary art. Since 2010, several meetings and work‐in-progress workshops took place, for example in Maastricht, Lisbon, and Glasgow. Besides these gatherings, a Linked-in group (with now over one hundred followers) was established to facilitate communication.
