Capacity Building Awards
Developing the Discipline Awards (research, methods and technologies)
Developing the Discipline Awards are ordinarily supported through the Small Grant Awards scheme, but in exceptional circumstances funds are awarded outside this scheme. Developing the Discipline Awards are not necessarily regionally specific but encourage the development of maritime archaeology and/ or the protection of underwater cultural heritage more broadly. They largely focus on the development of new technologies and methodologies that support maritime archaeological practise, as well as projects that develop aspects of Honor Frost’s research interests but with wider geographical reach. They also consider Capacity Building activities that are conducted outside the region, as well as activities that provide opportunities for scholars to meet and discuss the growth of maritime archaeology regionally and globally.
