The Swiss Institute for Art Research (SIK- ISEA) was founded in 1951 and has become a center of competence of international repute in the fields of art history and art technology. Its core activities are research, documentation and the dissemination of knowledge and information about the fine arts, the art sector and art technology. The focus is on art created in Switzerland. Its Research Promotion Program, launched in 2008, has established SIK-ISEA as an Institute for Advanced Study with an international perspective, and in the process it is making a major contribution to strengthening Switzerland's role as a research base. The Institute is a non-profit-making research body operated as a public-private partnership.
