For all those involved in or aware of training in natural history collections conservation and care


Sorry for cross-posting

Dear all,

In the EU Leonardo project ‘Testing the European Competency Framework for VET Collections Management’ (EUColComp), the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) is responsible for WP 2 "Research training needs and stakeholder analysis".  This 2-year project is coordinated by NHM London and started October 2013.


We have set up a questionnaire to inventory past and present training resources in conservation and care of natural history collections, available in Europe and beyond.

This survey is a unique opportunity to let us know about training courses you provide in the field of natural history collections conservation and care, or about training others provide.

The results of the survey will be used to develop a ‘Vocational Education and Training’ curriculum to assist staff in developing the appropriate competencies.

We would really be grateful if you could spare 5 minutes of your time to help us gather this information and visit:

Many thanks for your help with this!
With kind regards,


Dr Isabella Van de Velde
