The Young Professionals Forum is a fully digital event. 
Inclusion and involvement are at the heart of the project and this solution will allow everyone to participate from all over the world.

The Young Professionals Forum is divided into 4 thematic sessions, each of them  considered crucial in the debate concerning conservation and transmission of Cultural Heritage. The different sessions, organized in cooperation with international institutions, will include brief presentations which will be selected through the call for abstracts.

In addition to the presentation of contributions, the two days of the Forum will focus on moments of exchange, debate and round tables with professionals from the international cultural scene useful to encourage the sharing of experiences among professionals present. 

The event will be spread over two days (1-2 July 2021) from 1:00 to 5:00 pm (Rome time zone) and will be held on the Zoom platform.
