ICRI invites presentations for its conference “Conservation Activities in Ireland VI” on Thursday 4 October 2018 in the National Gallery of Ireland.

The conference will also engage the public and students to promote an understanding of the conservation profession and offer fruitful engagement with related study fields and to grow future alliances with research.
