It is our great pleasure to announce that the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (RLICC) will celebrate its 40th anniversary in Leuven on Monday September 12th 2016.
On behalf of the President and the staff of the Centre we are very pleased to invite you to join us at the occasion of this special celebration !
In 1976 the late Prof. Raymond Lemaire established an institute to disseminate the interest in built cultural heritage preservation worldwide through interdisciplinary training and to promote reflection on the integration of heritage in today's society – for tomorrow's generations. No less than 800 students from 70 countries have studied heritage preservation in the spirit of interdisciplinary and international learning at the RLICC. Nowadays many of those alumni work in the heritage field, have leading positions in national or international organisations, manage or work in architectural offices, in private consultancies, at academic institutions or for public authorities.
The anniversary meeting on September 12th will bring together representatives of various organisations and authorities in the field of heritage as well as several alumni of the RLICC.
On Monday morning, Prof. Rik Torfs, Rector of the University of Leuven, and representatives of several renowned international organisations will highlight the role of international, multidisciplinary education and research for cultural heritage management and development. In the afternoon, four panels composed of RLICC alumni of different nationalities, backgrounds and cohorts will have an interactive discussion on the dynamics of international, national and local organisations as well as education, research and professional activities.
