List of International Scientific Committees

©ICOMOS - CIAV Committee 2010The role and goals of International Scientific Committees are described in the Eger-X'ian Principles, a working document that was adopted during ICOMOS 15th General Assembly in 2005 and has been most recently updated in October 2013.

"The International [Scientific] Committees (ISCs) are the vehicles through which ICOMOS brings together, develops and serves its worldwide membership according to fields of specialized interest. ICOMOS expects the ISCs to be at the heart of scientific inquiry and exchange in their domains and to share knowledge among them to foster a multi-disciplinary approach to heritage protection and management, in fulfillment of the goals of ICOMOS as stated in Article 5.b. of its statutes: “Gather, study and disseminate information concerning principles, techniques and policies” related to heritage protection."
