About the EAJRS Conservation/Preservation Working Group

The idea of creating a European network for conservation/preservation of Japanese antiquarian materials came from a proposal made by Mr Akio Yasue, the keynote speaker of the special session: Protection, Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Properties of the 25th EAJRS conference held in Leuven on September 17, 2014. A small group of the EAJRS Board members have initiated the formation of an EAJRS conservation Working Group, with the following organization, objectives, and activities.

在欧和古書保存ワーキンググループ (略してWG) 設立の発想は2014年9月14日に開かれた EAJRS 特別セッション 「文化財の保護、保存、修復」 における基調講演者安江明夫氏の提言に基づくもので、その後 EAJRS ボード・メンバー有志者により、以下の目的、組織、活動内容を有するWGが作られた。
