Dialogue and collaboration with other departments, in both education and research, are important prerequisites for developing conservation/kulturvård as a subject and professional knowledge with depth and breadth. The Department of Conservation collaborates with several departments at the University of Gothenburg, other universities and many other actors outside the universities, such as the Swedish National Heritage Board, the National Property Board and the Church of Sweden.
