Policy Document Workshop - IIC Congress 2020

Screenshot from the IIC Congress 2020 online workshop on the policy template

The Linked Conservation Data Network in collaboration with the International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (IIC), the Institute of Conservation (Icon) and the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) prepared a policy template and primer on conservation data that heritage organisations can customise to deliver their own policies. The document was presented at the 2020 IIC Edinburgh Congress.

A group of participants from the Congress were invited to join us to discuss the policy document. The purpose of this meeting was to receive feedback on the document, furthering the Network’s discussions and reporting on ways that conservation documentation can be disseminated and re-used more effectively through Linked Data. Formalising the commitment to sharing conservation data will encourage investment to conservation data in a sustainable fashion with long-term benefits for the profession.

This is a video introduction to the policy primer and template and material that was discussed in the meeting.
