Within the activities of the IADA now lasting more than 50 years, there has been experienced a shift in the focus of the job profile. In earlier times, the act of conservation was of main importance, whereas nowadays conservation work is considered being of equal importance, as experiences made in this field have shown that optimum storage conditions and well-considered conservatory means may be responsible for the possible elimination of the necessity for conservation. In the view of technical development there have to be made demands for the best training possible to be guaranteed for the conservators. It is a wrong that art and cultural assets are exposed to decay or destroyed through inexpert conservation treatment because there simply are not available sufficient financial means or sufficiently skilled and trained persons for the maintenance and conservation of these treasures.
