Promote innovation by creating a clearinghouse through the National Park Service National Center for Preservation Technology and Training to disseminate information on innovative technologies and encourage their use.

The Fostering Innovation panel focused in part on the importance of using innovative technologies to enhance historic property stewardship. A key element for fostering innovation is the exchange of information, but there are currently few channels for cross-pollination of ideas. To fill that void, the panel suggested creating a national clearinghouse for information exchange to highlight model technologies and applications. The panel recommended establishing the clearinghouse at the existing National Park Service National Center for Preservation Technology and Training. Created by amendment of the NHPA in 1992, the Center’s mission is to develop and distribute skills and technologies that enhance the preservation, conservation, and interpretation of historic resources.

Suggested lead agency: National Park Service

This ‘after the fire’ view of the Mill City Museum in Minneapolis, Minnesota, incorporating the ruins of the National Historic Landmark Washburn A Mill with a contemporary structure serving multiple purposes, is an analogy in steel, glass, and stone of how the best of the present can both improve and build upon while incorporating important remnants of the past. The old mill itself was considered the technological cutting edge of the flour-milling industry when it was built in the 19th century.
