Jernej Hudolin has been employed at the Restoration Centre of Slovenia since 1989. During this time he gained profound knowledge of conservation and restoration work and therewith related issues. When the department for the protection and conservation of monuments was reorganised in 2002, Jernej Hudolin became Head of the Restoration Centre which was then an organisational unit of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia. During this time some of the most comprehensive and demanding restoration projects were implemented: restoration of Quaglio’s painting in the Cathedral of Ljubljana, a full renovation of the staircase on the Bled Island, transfer of the original Robba Fountain into the National Gallery, restoration of famous Robba altars in several churches of Ljubljana, etc. Meanwhile, the Restoration Centre started to participate in large interinstitutional projects such as the Apoksiomen exhibition and developed contacts with top-level institutions in the field of restoration such as the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. As of August 6, 2014, Jernej Hudolin took up his duties as the new Director General of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia and succeeded to Jelka Pirkovič.
