Event description: 

University of Cambridge Museums (UCM) in partnership with the British Library are organising a one day course in Managing Projects in Conservation and Collections Care

This course will explore the practical application of the principles of project management in conservation and collections care. The participants will work on case studies, use tools and implement techniques that will help them to run small and mid-size projects efficiently.

The course is run by Dr Paul Heffernan, until recently a University Lecturer in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge and Andor Vince, Collections Care Officer at the Fitzwilliam Museum. Both lecturers teach from their practical experience and tailor the principles of project management to the needs of conservation and collections care. The course is highly practical and the participants learn how to apply project management tools in practice by working through different case studies.
