There is a 4 years direct diploma course of studies at the
"Fachhochschule fur Technik und Wirtschaft", Department of
Conservation and Archaeological Excavation at Berlin, established in
1993. One filed of specialization is the conservation of Technical
and Industrial Heritage. For more information contact Prof. Dr.
Matthias Knauth <m.knaut [at] rz__fhtw-berlin__de>. One of the students
ended with a thesis on "Outdoor Storage of Large Objects at the
Rhineland Museum of Industry". This research is unpublished, but of
reasonable value (off course it is written in German). The author is
Stefan Mai <st.mai [at] cityweb__de>.

Besides there is a research carried out by the Zollern Institute in
Germany on "Corrosion Protection on Industrial Heritage" covering
the outdoor topic too. The final conference of this project is held
at Bochum at 11.-13.5.2000. More information are obtainable from
Dr. Stefan Brueggerhoff, e-mail: Brueggerhoff [at] lb__dmt__de

Finally there is another conference held at Aug 28-29 2000 at the
Rhineland Museum of Industry in Oberhausen, Germany. The title is in
translation "Attention, not painted!" and it deals with Industrial
Heritage in the trouble spot of professional preservation and public
access. Information by Dr. John <t.martini [at] mail__lvr__de>
