Results of CCI Research Brainstorming

At the 2018 Canadian Association for Conservation of Cultural Property (CAC) conference in Kingston, the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) held a brainstorming exercise to identify which areas of interest could be focused on in future research. Delegates were asked to submit ideas during the first two days of the conference, and on the third day, delegates voted on all the ideas to rank them in order of importance.
