NCPTT advances the application of science and technology to historic preservation. Working in the fields of archeology, architecture, landscape architecture and materials conservation, the Center accomplishes its mission through training, education, research, technology transfer and partnerships. NCPTT seeks innovative projects that advance science and technology for historic preservation. The PTT Grants program funds projects that develop new technologies or adapt existing technologies to preserve cultural resources. Projects may include, but are not limited to: • laboratory or field research that explores or assesses novel or adaptive methods; • training activities, including workshops, and course or curriculum development that promote the use of new or adaptive technologies; • documentation using new methods; • manuscript or website development that disseminates innovative preservation technologies; and • meetings that convene experts to discuss the use of technologies to address preservation problems. NCPTT does not fund “bricks and mortar” projects or straight-forward documentation projects using well-established methods.
