YOCOCU - Youth in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage

Antwerpen, 18-20 June 2012


YOCOCU (YOuth in COnservation of CUltural heritage) was born in 2008 with the aim to realize a network among young professionals and researchers, working in different fields of Cultural Heritage.
YOCOCU has soon become an extraordinary symbol of union where young students, researchers and professionals, all animated by common goals, meet to tell their own stories, to give their inputs to research and cultural growth in the different fields of Cultural Heritage: chemistry, physics, biology, restoration, archaeology, architecture. 
In YOCOCU young professionals, students and researchers are called to increase and strengthen their consciousness to be the main actors of the present and future society and the power for the development of new knowledge. This is the reason of YOCOCU: we all work together for our collective interest and show this in a unique, free and open way at each meeting. The past two editions have made YOCOCU a network for interdisciplinary and international collaborations.
YOCOCU is a history made up of several chapters, each one with its own author and its specific topic.
