Erika Hedhammar

Swedish National Heritage Board
Visby, Sweden
Erika Hedhammar is risk management advisor at the Swedish National Heritage Board. She has a BSc in conservation from the University of Gothenburg. With her background as textile conservator, she has often dealt with water or fire damaged objects. The ICCROM course First aid to cultural heritage in times of conflict in Rome in 2010, was a definitive eye opener and high-lightened the need for organisational solutions. Erika Hedhammar is coordinator for the Swedish network for fire protection and disaster preparedness in cultural environments, which also acts as a network for issues regarding theft of cultural heritage, both administered by the National Heritage Board. She organises national courses and seminars on disaster preparedness and has lectured internationally on the subject for ICCROM .
