Why become a representative of ERC and what are the requirements?
- The strongest argument in favor of becoming a representative of ERC is that you become a member of a lively and supportive worldwide community.
- The second good reason for joining us is that all your ideas concerning improving the Centre and its tool are discussed in our community and most of them – or even all of them – are taken up and implemented. After all, it is our own Centre that should serve our interdisciplinary needs.
- The third valid argument is that your work becomes widely visible for a large community.
- You must be an expert in one of the relevant professions such as conservation, biology, chemistry, history, etc.
- You must be able to speak and write English.
- Your work is voluntary, you only take up as much as you can take.
- The core activity is building and running a nationwide network of conservators, archivists, librarians and other specialists involved in written and graphic art preservation and interested in the results of our work.
- Furthermore you are expected to run a vital communication with these colleagues, collecting their suggestions and forwarding them to us and vice versa, as well as disseminating information coming from the Centre, which might involve in some cases its translation into local languages, where necessary.
- You are invited to take over further work to the degree you are prepared – for example, contributing to our MuLiBiNe, getting involved in our publishing activities In particular the “Conservation Update” as editor or peer reviewer, our awards, keeping our webpage up to date, handing in research projects, etc.
