Concept and Role of the Center

Cultural Heritage is the property of everyone in the world. Neither national nor ethnic boundaries should hinder the work of their protection which must be accomplished through international cooperation.

The Japan Center for International Cooperation in Conservation plays a role in conservation, enhances collaboration with other institutes concerning protection of cultural property, collects, disseminates and utilizes information on conservation of cultural property in other countries, conducts international exchanges in research related to the conservation and restoration of cultural property, conducts international cooperative projects on conservation and restoration, rescues cultural property in case of disasters, and trains specialists in conservation of cultural property.

It also cooperates with the International Research Sites Section of the Nara National Research Institute for Cultural Properties to conducts international activities by both Institutes smoothly.
