International Scientific Committees

ICOMOS has established scientific international committees on various cultural heritage themes and issues. Members consist of international renowned expert specialists in each subject and designated by their own national committee. The international scientific committees are ICOMOS technical bodies. As such, they undertake research, develop conservation theory, guidelines, and charters, and foster training for better heritage conservation, promote international exchange of scientific information and carry out common projects. They elaborate their own program and submit it to the Executive Committee for approval as well as their annual report of activities.
