It is specially indicated for professionals who have participated in the “Secrets under the Waves” project that UNESCO implemented in the region as part of the programme “Capacity building, implementation actions and increase ratification schemes for the 2001 Convention for the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage in Latin America and the Caribbean“, carried out with the support of Spanish cooperation.

The seminar is aimed at strengthening lines of cooperation in inter-institutional and professional conservation-restoration. The activity hopes to divulge the articulation of the methodological system used by the Spanish Cultural Heritage Institute (IPCE) and the National Museum of Underwater Archaeology (ARQUA) for the conservation-restoration of the underwater cultural heritage. The objective is to develop capacity-building in order to create institutional networks with Ibero-American heritage entities and promote specific areas of work and collaboration on these themes.
