Established in 2003 with the aid of a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Research Forum is located at the heart of the Courtauld. The Research Forum offers an extensive programme of lectures, conferences, workshops and seminars supporting advanced inquiry in the history of art, conservation and museum studies. Committed to inspiring dialogue and collaboration between sections of the Institute, the Research Forum has also created links with a wide range of national and international partners through jointly organised events and through its invitations to visiting professors, curators and conservators. Building contacts among researchers of all generations, the Forum seeks to enrich their experience of art history by facilitating debate and discussion.
