Javni Zavod Republike Slovenije Za Varstvo Kulturne Dediscine / Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia

The Institute’s mission is to perform the public service that covers a variety of administrative and professional duties relating to the protection of immovable and movable cultural heritage and of the living cultural heritage associated with it. Its mission is based on the numerous procedures linked to the direct conservation of heritage, the prevention of damage, and dissemination and popularisation of its activities. Among many of the structural units IPCHS funded a Research Institute in 2011, with the scientific equipment set-up designed to investigate cultural heritage or other objects at micro or non-invasive level.
