Icon's Modern Materials Network brings together specialists interested in the conservation and preservation of modern materials and digital content

Modern materials are increasingly being collected by museums and the heritage sector as artists, designers and manufacturers adopt or adapt these materials for their art and products. 

Modern materials are varied and include plastics, pigments, binders, coatings, fabrics and can also include objects that without their electronic and digital components do not function or have value.

This network is dedicated to their preservation and hopes to bring together specialist knowledge and opportunities to network for this purpose.
