About

Preserving our written and graphical cultural heritage is a complex challenge. The Interdisciplinary Methods in Graphic Art, Book and Document Conservation program of the Danube University Krems is a timely and interdisciplinary answer to this challenge.

Overview

Key facts

Written and graphical cultural heritage are two central areas of identification and legitimisation of Europe´s society and civilisation.
