Conservation and Restoration Clinic

The Conservation and Restoration Clinic is made up of several Conservation and Restoration Laboratories whose purpose is the integral management of cultural assets. Initially it had a laboratory specialised in the conservation of ceramic materials, but the need to serve an increasingly demanding market and the articulation of the centre with the ongoing training activities (undergraduate, postgraduate and masters), determined the expansion of several valences of historical-artistic heritage. This Centre develops services in the areas of ceramics and tiles, painting, sculpture and carving, which intrinsically articulate with the training and research activities.

The centre in its research, training and service provision areas has as its main objectives:

  • Develop the practice of service provision;
    To develop research activities;
  • To promote higher level training in order to dignify the profession of conservator-restorer;
  • To provide students from the UPT and other educational institutions with work experience placements.
